You can calculate
in a Google search box, and it yields about 0.006638  or about 6.6 msec. 


If there is 5.0 × 10^{9} s / m delay and if 825 miles are equivalent to 1,327,708.8 meters then the delay will be 


0.0066385440025356051588564794616356 seconds 


1 (sec) / 200,000 (KM) = 0.000005 (s / km) 1.609344 (mile in KM) x 825 = 1327.7088 KM Therefore the delay over 825 miles is 0.006638544 seconds.
