Even in TNG's era, it still took hours for a transmission to reach a ship. (See "The Defector")
It's always taken exactly as long as the plot calls for. There are numerous examples of real-time subspace conversations taking place throughout TOS and TNG whenever it was convenient for the writers.
It all depends on "Do we want Picard to interact with Fleet Admiral #25 or do we just want him to listen? What's in the budget?"
