The problem is that the NetGeo Web service is no longer maintained by the company that created, so some IPs are returning the locations that they used to be associated when the service is maintained.

Unfortunately it is something that this class developer cannot do anything. This does not mean that the class is not useful. Actually it is used by the PHPClasses site to recommend a mirror close to the user location.

Every IP to location solution should be used only as a recommendation because there will always be inaccuracies as the IP ranges switch from locations regularly.
