Well, unless the soletta array is on the opposite side of
the planet, and signals are being relayed from another
pair of communication satellites.  One from the ground to
orbit, one at the soletta, and one satellite visible to both.
You build in a second or so of lag in the relay.  I can
assume a communications constellation as easily as I
can a moon. 

We do have canon that the solar array was built up a
bit at a time.
