Last 7 Days - Many IPs resolve to Westminster or Covent Gard

Post by Bookham » Tue Mar 20, 2012 3:41 am

Dear Sirs

Over the last week we've noticed that many IP addresses, from many different ISPs all resolve to London Westminster and/or Convent Garden. Can you advise why? Is this perhaps a "catch all" location?

For example:

213.106.160.241 - Virgin Media UK. Hostname: cpc3-acto5-0-0-cust240.4-2.cable.virginmedia.com. This would suggest it is in Acton.
212.183.128.28 - Vodafone UK - Mobile Internet.
80.195.188.180 - Virgin Media UK - Hostname: cpc16-nmal17-2-0-cust179.croy.cable.virginmedia.com. This would suggest it is in Croydon.
109.144.190.165 - BT UK - BT OpenZone Wifi Hotspot.
86.162.203.122 - BT UK - BT Domestic connection - host86-162-203-122.range86-162.btcentralplus.com

We have others, some on the Three Mobile Broadband network too, all show up as Covent Garden London, why? Is there a problem?

Thanks

Bookham

Could be a glitch in one of the datasources or a generic UK location. Next data refresh will be processed this evening so check back tomorrow and see if anything has changed.
