Home Internet Users and Phone Lines

As most of you know...if the phone line is too long going into a dial-up modem
on an ordinary standalone PC you will be lucky to be able to dial-up.
The thing is tell this to a non-computer person, client or whatever and they look at you like if you are some kind of goon - After all signals have been travelling down phone wires from faraway places for decades yet it cannot travel from a phonejack to a PC only 15 yards away (they ask)
Does anyone have a link to an artice about the need for the telephone jack to be near
the PC to get a good signal. (or reference to a book)
Any links would be much appreciated.
