is there a difference between Latency and speed ?

so latency is the time it takes for bits to get from the sender to the receiver and the speed is how fast bits travel , so logically the more speed the network has the more low latency it has also , but why are people saying that Satellite connection has good speed but Horrible Latency !! can someone please explain what going on here ?
