Is DSL faster than a satellite Internet connection?

I am not sure as far as technically, but from personal experience I have HughesNet Satellite and I hate it. At times it is very fast and at times very slow. I am constantly going over my fair access policy usage for downloading too much and most of the time my windows update puts me over. My mother-in-law has DSL and she never has slow down or over limit. If I had a choice I would switch in a second, but DSL is not available in my area yet. Keeping my fingers crossed that it will come soon. :) If you decide to go with satellite I would steer clear of hughesnet!!!
