Light has one natural advantage, in that it doesn't have mass and so it goes at the speed of light. Electrons are not that fast. It's more complicated though, since both electrons in a conductor and photos in a fiber are slowed down by various amounts depending on the medium. It's very possible that the photos in a photonic chip could be substantially faster than electrons in an electronic chip.

All I ask is a chance to prove that money can't make me happy.
