| If it does not, how does the ifSpeed variable get populated with a value?

My Cisco command reference for 11.3 says that the bandwidth command is a
reference for higher level protocols. It doesn't say *which* higher level
protocols, but I have a distant memory of a Cisco instructor telling us that
eigrp uses it in route path computation.  I don't think it does anything for
serial interface clocking, the interface command "clock" does this.

You have to use it to populate ifSpeed.
