The IP based geolocation map is not always precise. A pool of IPs from each ISPs are shared amongst users from multiple cities, and the IPs are randomly assigned to users on an availability basis. Different IP-to-location data providers do their best to provide accurate information, but the nature of the mapping causes the data to be less accurate.

One location is saying I am in Naperville, Illinois and the other three are saying I am in Albuquerque NM.  I am in Albuquerque NM but MLB.TV is blacking out baseball games in the Chicago market because it thinks I am in Naperville, Illinois. What do I need to do to get the address correct?
