London based droplet IP shows up as being based in US

Posted August 12, 2014 3.9k views

Up until yesterday (11th August) my London based droplet’s IP address of was showing up in various “whatsmyip” websites as being located in London, but today its location is showing up as being in the US. Anyone have an idea why this is? Thanks

Because their GeoIP databases are out of date.

inetnum: -
descr: DigitalOcean London
country: GB

You say out of date. However if you read my post again it WAS showing the correct location GB up until the 11th. NOW its showing US, somehow “out of date” doesnt make sense.
