If you look at Toronto, the main carrier hotel is quite famous at 151
Front Street, very near to the main train station, convention centre etc

the internet infrastructure may not realise what this building is about,
but anyone who knows how ISPs operate would know the strategic
importance of that building.

People who do not know that there's a Front Street East as well as a Front Street West also like to fight their way through the mantrap to front desk security and demand to see the dentist.

So if anybody ever finds an operational advantage to having equipment in a building regularly visited by people with bad teeth, bear that in mind.

Hey, some of the best network engineers I have met are British....
