it should be a benefit if your broadband is ADSL as you would get top speed

@sjanes being next to the exchange could be a hindrance as you'll probably be on an Exchange Only line means that you can only have ADSL instead of the even faster fibre products

But have you considered the electromagnetic radiation emitted by the cables supplying the power required by the exchange? Those cables likely run very close to the property.

Yes... From idiots that think that  Covid  a living  infectious disease is the same as a virtual non-living, computer virus and could likely cause a uncontrollable fire.

Looking at you 5G conspiracy theorist. If you thought the government was infecting, tracking, etc. why would you use a mobile or post on a forum with a PC. And if one of them is reading this the hulk is computer generated and sorry to let you down but he's not real either.
