Yes you do, you're just clinging on in desperate but misguided hope. Look,
it's dashed in front of your very eyes:

effect permitted by relativity - each component of the pulse travels slower
than light. It would be impossible to transmit information faster than
light because it would be encoded onto a single frequency component. >
