Re: [BC] No VPN on Telus!

Not sure if this is why Speedtest.net seems to think the new 108.180 blocks are located in Northern Manitoba and always chooses Winnipeg or Edmonton to test from. (I'm from Vancouver)

Just noticed this started happening in the last month or so.

Geolocation issues have been discussed here before. If you are doing a geolocation lookup on an IP and you get the middle of nowhere in northern Manitoba is means there is no location assigned to the IP besides "Canada". This is nothing new.

Geolocation databases are updated on a 30 day cycle for most of the internet. Companies that pay for the updates get them much faster but few do.
