I think visual was probably much more strictly allotted. I figure that in the modern day, it takes less bandwidth (or whatever else) to do audio communications than it does full video, and I imagine that even in the future with subspace communications, it would still be about the same. Except, of course, they can call across whole lightyears.
Plus, especially during wartime, I'd think that the relays and everything that makes it possible would be dedicated mostly to wartime traffic.
