Subspace communication is the primary form of communication, used by most warp capable species across the galaxy. Subspace communications are dispatched through subspace in excess of warp factor +9.9999, and can thus, travel incredible distances. (ST reference: Star Trek Encyclopedia)
At close range to a sender of a subspace communication, real-time communication is possible, but outside of that range, their is a time lag depending on how distant the receiver is to the sender. This can be combatted with the deployment of subspace relay buoys that act as a booster to subspace messages and allow better communication. (VOY episode: "Message in a Bottle")
