The more I look at it, it seems that Gravity and Electromagnetic radiation ACT at the speed of light, but electromagnetic radiation can travel slower than this limit up until it is intercepted; conversely gravity can travel faster than the speed of light down to the limit. Its confusing...This also explains why neutrino detectors are only registering about a third of the expected neutrino flux from the Sun...it all fits. It is the ACT that has the speed of light character...between emission and intercept, the limit doesn't necessarily hold.
