I have read reports that this is not the case.  In particular, several
reviews have seen roughly 2x speedup, and while the multipath immunity
of PCBB is not too hot the noise rejection is quite nice (about 3dB better
at 11mbps, and the same at 22mbps as CCK at 11mbps).  I can't vouch for
any of these claims, but I do have some hardware that people could use
in a test if they wanted to set one up.
