Halfords invents radio signals that don't travel at the speed of light

I'm having trouble actually checking what the dispersion properties of radio waves in the atmosphere are. Visible light in solids tends to have lower group velocity at higher frequency (normal dispersion), which is the speed the signal reaches you at. However this can be the other way around depending on the medium and wavelength.
