Why is latency and bandwith separated? If latency is delay of data, and bandwith is data over time, shouldn’t one affect another? If it takes 5s for a car to start, and 10s to reach it’s destination, then the average speed would be spread out across the whole 15s. Should this not be the same?

It depends on what you need. If youre designing a car to drive 100 miles, then the speed of the car is more relevant. If you’re designing a car that only moves 5 feet, then it’ll spend most of it’s time starting up, so if you need it to make that trip faster, that’s the time you need to improve.
