Hi Chance. We address this question in several places throughout the site. It basically boils down to this, no ip address geolocation database is 100% accurate.

IP Address Geolocation Incorrect

IP Lookup is showing wrong City and State.

"Your IP Location can be found using our IP Lookup tool. No IP Lookup tool is 100% accurate due to many different factors. Some of those factors include where the owner of the IP has it registered, where the agency that controls the IP is located, proxies, cellular IPs, etc. If you are in the US and the controlling agency of the IP is located in Canada, chances are the IP address lookup results will show as Canada. Showing a Canadian IP while in the northern US is very common among mobile users on the Verizon network."
