Perhaps I'm calling out a silly time scale to use. Please correct me if so.

In GR, it travels at the speed of light. However, in GR, there is also a velocity-dependent component to gravity, and those interactions cancel out the aberration from the finite speed.

So both theories give the same results, and one can e.g. send ships to other planets using only Newtonian mechanics.

This paper: https://arxiv.org/abs/gr-qc/9909087 shows this mathematically.
