Hoping that soon we get to transmit data to other star systems very quickly. Arecibo Message and some other similar ones were sent out there but they will travel at the speed of light, so most (if not all) of these haven't reached any other stars. Even if they do, we'd have to be lucky to have these stars be inhabited. With FTL radio, we could try sending to an enormous number of stars, and the messages would arrive quickly. If at least one of these are inhabited by an intelligent species and they have the technology to answer, we'd find them!(Obviously, it's possible that there aren't enough intelligent species or even non-intelligent species for us to reach with these messages any time soon, even after FTL Radio Waves can actually be used for more than an experiment...)

If light speed is constant and time no. Wave radio back in time? If yes, wave radio no is more fast light speed.

ps: sorry my bad english
