Is a change in gravity felt instantaneously on the other "side" of the universe?

That is, does gravity travel instantaneously? Have we ever been able to measure the speed with which 'gravity travels'?

I'm pretty sure the speed of gravity is theoretically = to c. I think an experiment was done a few years ago to determine this actually... I'm not sure of the results.
