We present unique dispersion characteristics of high-contrast grating (HCG) hollow-core waveguides and show that slow light can be facilitated using internal resonances developing inside the waveguide walls. In addition, we show a fast and precise method of inferring the dispersion information from the waveguide angular reflectivity spectrum.
