geolocation providers not as accurate as whatismyipaddres

Post by dmasson » Thu Mar 01, 2012 3:02 pm

looking up this ip address in maxmind or neustar services I always get a US based IP or a MX based IP, however whatismyipaddress.com shows me the right location of this ip which is Bogota, Colombia, what extra criteria or information are you using to get this accurate ??, the ip address is:

166.238.5.246
