That still isn't accurate all the time.
The easiest example is AOL - they are based in VA, so on occasion, a customer in say, ND, could be given an IP that would look like it's come from VA. When I was using dialup a few years ago, my IP was mapped to the closest major part of SBC, which showed me as being in San Jose, when in fact I was 3hrs from there.
So I reitterate the above point: "IP->GEO isn't very precise."
