Location/Locality benefits for receiving fast Stock Market Live Tick Data?

I’m just wondering if there are any pro/cons of our location/locality in receiving the stock market’s live tick data faster/slower?

Don’t think so if you are receiving ticks via internet, to have considerable benefit one should have leased lines and line closer to exchange server the better. So HFT firms opt for colocation. Also for retail trader and who do manual trading location should not matter, one can’t beat machines in execution.
