IP Geolocation Accuracy?

Post by JPC » Thu Mar 01, 2018 11:10 am

I need to verify the location of this ip address.
IP: 2602:306:342b:d060:19a7:2b30:60f9:defb

The result listed from this website shows a location that is an hour drive from where I was informed the login took place.

How accurate is this?
State/Region: Kansas
City: Mission
Latitude: 39.0241 (39° 1′ 26.76″ N)
Longitude: -94.6714 (94° 40′ 17.04″ W)
Postal Code: 66202

Is it possible that the actual login took place over 60 miles away?
That gps information zeros in on a specific location, which seems to suggest to me that there is a reasonable level of accuracy.
