IP lookup shows 2 locations

Post by amandroy »

HI all,

I am confused about an IP numbering of similar 6x.xx.xx.xx ip resolving

when i trace the ip through other geolocation tools.

i get the results displayed as
IP Address 6x.xx.xx.xx
Country United States
City Southeastern
Region Pennsylvania
Postal Code 19399
but when i lookout the same through whatismyipaddress.com it shows
Hostname: 6x.xx.xx.xx
ISP: Hurricane Electric
Organization: Hurricane Electric
Proxy: None detected
Type: Broadband
Assignment: Static IP

Geo-Location Information

Country: United States
State/Region: California
City: Fremont
Latitude: 37.5155
Longitude: -121.8962
Area Code: 510
Let me know which one is correct and why i am seeing two locations for a single IP.

Since nobody other than the ISP has direct access to customer records each geolocation database provider has their own methodology for determining the location of an IP address.
