I don't think so. If distance between NY and London is 10: Scenario A: you are 1 from NY, 9 from London. You will have information about time X from NY in X+1 and London in X+9. Your long to NY will take 1 and your short to London will take 9. That's a total of 18 to get quote and fill in London. Scenario B: you are 5 from NY, 5 from London. Total to get quote and get filled in both markets is equal at 10. The longest path is your latency in a simple long/short arbitrage situation, so being equidistant to all of your liquidity centers is advantageous.

Sounds exactly like the marketing-speak I use when people find bugs in my code... Sounds better than "we screwed up"
