curious as to why server location matters? the closer the server never hurts for latency but it's not it needs the proximity of towers for reception?

there was an attempt to answer this on page 1 without too much jargon but the explanation doesn't work for me; 4G LTE data is less reliable than conventional broadband internet, but still don't see how that correlates to server location.
The signal still needs to travel from your cellphone company's servers (presumaby those are close to you) to the Voip provider server.
If two servers are across the continent, it may result in too big latency, and more importantly, jitter.
