I don't know, but I really would love to stop that delay AND be able to subscribe immediately. Thanks for bringing this up, as I assume someone will have an answer.

Google Groups grew out of Usenet News which uses the NNTP protocol. This is a "pull" rather than "push" protocol. Google Groups still interfaces with Usenet, so I guess that Google Groups still uses NNTP to synchronise. Maybe they "pull" once or twice a minute.
