Your broadband performance can also be affected by factors outside your home including your distance from the exchange and electric fences

Electric fences

In rural areas where electric fences are poorly constructed or not earthed correctly it can impact your internet connection. This issue is experienced more by dial-up internet users than those on broadband.

Physical distance from the exchange

For both ADSL and VDSL broadband delivered over copper, the further you are from your local telephone exchange or roadside cabinet, the more the service degrades.
