    cough....

    If you mean transition frequency, the 2N2222 is specified as minimum 250MHz but you can get other types that work at several tens of GHz, maybe 250 or more times faster.

    Re: the fastest transistor

    A quick search showed me that the 2N2222 was introduced in 1962 (54 years ago) as a general purpose transistor. During my long electronics career I worked with many audio, radio and video products and it was never used in any of them. If you want a fast transistor then use a fast transistor, not a general purpose one.
