Quova, Maxmind, and others all return accurate results for everything of

I'll have to re-echo your experience, which doesn't bode well for our

The link below returns accurate information for me too. Our blocks have
been in use for years and we have not experienced even a hint of
geolocation related problems before.

Direct peering would be our ideal solution to this problem, but Google
doesn't appear to play in our smaller market.

I don't know what Google uses but any company using F5 equipment is using

The problem is that the F5 devices don't update the database files

request at my company I don't bother updating on a regular basis.
