Doubtful.  That DVD download is usually used more than once, while all
network installs will always download a whole lot of stuff each time.

Reasonable proxy behavior would mostly fix that.

A base + software development install for x86 is about 3GB on disk,
or 1.5GB on install media.  Many proxies don't cache that much,
so the savings usually are not so large.

If you do this sort of thing regularly, it is worth configuring a proxy to cache large files.
