FTL transmission?

Can anyone clear this up for me: if they have light signals emitted from
this setup on the far end even before the light on the near end has fully
entered the chamber, what is preventing me from constructing a very long
chamber of this sort from here to Alpha Centauri and then conducting
transmissions through it with no delay whatsoever?

And does anyone really understand what is causing this effect? The
article makes out like they have also seen similiar effects in regular
air with microwaves but not with the 300x speedup.
