Re: Oooooooh!

The speed of light/electricity/radio is all the same in a vacuum. Air is a neutral medium and does not significantly affect radio or light energy as it passes through.

In your example, you said that "coax is around 70% the speed of light." Simply not true. The Wikipedia article you referenced sites an article between 2 hacks that are discussing attenuation and signal loss. It has nothing to do with how fast the signal passes across the medium. Energy passing across the medium will only be slowed by the other equipment that it passes through, such as transmitters, repeaters, receivers, etc. The same holds true for radio waves.

Light, however, passing through optical media travels about 35% slower than the speed of light, depending on the refractive index of the media. Again, this is not significant, but it renders your statement incorrect, hence my chuckle.

Check your facts.

Oh, and I missed the you=pwned bit the first time I read your reply.

Thanks for another laugh. That's so 2000's. Hahaha!

You are such a sad person.
You even said I was right by saying how light is slowed in fiber medium.
So sad.
I guess you pwned yourself?

I'm not sad at all. If you check my bio, you'll see that I am in the business of getting data from one place to the next, and I've been doing it for a LONG time. I just think it laughable that in your previous statement that you think that fiber is the fastest, followed by wireless, followed by coax.

I'm also not in the business of name calling, but in the spirit of your posts...

You=immature and childish

Electricity flows at different speeds through different media, like I said.

Aside from your negativity and unwillingness to go by reality.

I guess in all your years of wisdom you never ordered cable before and have no idea what a velocity factor is.

Some can be as low as 66% of the speed of light and some as high as 88%

pwned again.
Check your facts please.

Got nothing to say now when I through the facts at you?
