I thought I was with Plusnet.

Why is it that what is my IP today (6th February 23) shows the following ?

Looks like; as usual, someone doesn't bother to to do correct name data entry when they use a new IP Block.

WHO the hell are BT Americas Inc. (A BT global services company serving USA and Canada !!!!!)

I thought I was with Plusnet

My Public IPv4 is: 150.143.36.134

My Public IPv6 is: Not Detected

My IP Location is: London, ENG GB

My ISP is: BT Americas Inc.

Re: I thought I was with Plusnet.

@Edward_Snowden You are still a Plusnet customer - BT in the UK have had a number of IP blocks  transferred to them from the States - as is obvious from the IP location data in your post. However, this data is not always fully corrected.

Where did you get that information from?

Thank you for your rapid response John,

Data from where ?  My Router /PC and any ip and AS lookup site will show the info. BT Americas Inc. ??????? REALLY  ????Huh

What are 'not so savvy' Plusnet Customers supposed to think ?

The AS lookup clearly shows it is a  Plusnet.address block

My point was;  to show the incompetence (unable to do do the job they are being PAID to do !) of the person doing the data entry when registering / transferring the block to Plusnet.

Just another example of sloppy work practices these days in the UK in general.

I would have been SACKED if I did that, when configuring Networks in my past life.

NOT acceptable. Poor show.

Re: I thought I was with Plusnet.

@Edward_Snowden It is ISP location Service providers who are at fault - I checked your IP after posting my answer, and of the six referenced in my source, only one had  100%accurate information - although they all correctly identified the 'country'  location as 'UK'

@Edward_Snowden  'not so savvy' users won't be doing an IP address lookup in the first place 😎
