the "all jumps take one week" rule is not so much a speed of plot rule as, people had to do other things than sit around playing Traveller, like go to their job, to make money so they could go to the gaming store to get the next neat Traveller thing. For those who got to play once a week, it was easy to make the jump the break point until next week's game.

It made time keeping easier, by allowing the characters to match the real world calendar to the game calendar.
