Abstract : We give an estimate of an upper bound of information propagation speed as a function of a targeted transport capacity density. The propagation speed depends on the density of simultaneous emitters and the node mobility model. We assume that nodes move according to an independent random walk. This work makes the junction between the work of Gupta and Kumar~(2000) and Grossglauser and Tse~(2002). We show that the information speed tends to zero when the transport capacity tends to infinity. We compare our result to the performance of an actual protocol based on angle determination.
