No one has ever accelerated anything beyond the speed of light. Some folks claim to have done so, but only in a complicated argument involving wave velocity and particle velocity. Regardless, no information has ever moved faster than c. That is a fundamental postulate in Einstein's theory of special relativity and, to the best of our knowledge, hasn't changed.
