Modem says I'm in Georgia Yet i'm in Iowa
How does this happen? Why, And since the modem thinks Im in another state would this effect routing speed from site like Apple Amazon etc?
Rebooted twice (Once was a reset from Chad) and no dice
You probably got a new IP address since there dhcp issued. Last customer that had it was a Georgia Mediacom customer.

No, it doesn't matter really. Geolocation data is not always correctly and usually slow to be updated when a block is moved between sites.
Ex-Comcast Tech at the Beach. I speak for myself, not my former employer.
My connection shows up as either Selbyville, DE or Aimes, Iowa. With the connection having the same IP address all the time. I'm pretty sure my house doesn't move back and forth. I get ads targeted to both places. Location change seems to kick in when my modem reboots itself (but keeps the IP address). I'm not complaining, just passing along an observation. My theory was that Iowa is the geographic center of the US, so this is the default "location" if the actual one can't be pinned down...
I think you may be on to something with Iowa being the default as Mediacom is the largest cable provider here and I think anyware they do business
