I don`t think gravity has speed, gravity is there already as a field surrounding any matter, like a pool of water, as you add more water to it the pool`s getting bigger, but it all starts with a drop of water , and in this case a molecule has gravity, as you add more molecule the gravity field and strength increase with it. Gravity doesn`t reach out and grap you, rather it wait for you to be within it gravitaional field then sucks you in, like a pool of water waiting for you to fall-in. Just don`t horse-play around a gravity field strong like that of a black-hole.
