Normally within a hour or two. The SKS keyservers use a very fast and
efficient protocol to exchange updates. Updates are emailed to other
keyservers running different software packages as well as the older PKS
servers to try and keep them updated.

Keyserver web pages listen on port 11371, so one needs to add the port
to the browser URL:
About 1/2 of the SKS servers also listen on port 80, the default http
port, for users behind restrictive firewalls. There's even an email
protocol for user behind REALLY restrictive firewalls. Peter
Pramberger's status page indicates which servers have these capabilities.
There are presently eight or so servers supporting IPv6. That should
improve with time.
