IP geolocation dataset


Hi guys,

Is anyone able to provide any information on the IP geolocation dataset used by Fastly’s geolocation extension?

I’ve received some complaints from clients stating they are being geoblocked when they shouldn’t be.

Is it possible to explore the dataset at all? Or at least find out where the dataset has been provisioned from?


client.geo.* is provided by Digital Element, and geoip.* (which we’re deprecating) is Maxmind.

If your clients are willing to help fix this, please send to support@fastly.com a list containing the IPs, expected location and current incorrect location. And indicate which geo VCL variables you are using.
We will directly report these errors to the right vendor so they can implement a fix for their next release.
