I checked it before posting, of course.

https://www.convert-me.com/en/convert/length/lightminute.html?u=lightminute&v=40

gives me about 720 million km in 40 minutes

https://www.space.com/14729-spacekids-distance-earth-mars.html

gives the average distance from Earth to Mars as 225 million km.
Even at the maximum distance, that's *almost* enough time for the round 
trip. Of course, at that point the electrons would have to pass through 
the sun, and that would significantly cut down the bandwidth to about... 
er... zero.
