I am using ipinfo extensively and I see some information missing that is on other services.
How can I tell if a carrier is Mobile, SatCOM or terrestrial, this goes the variability and reliability of the geo location and IP sharing which is very common on mobile carriers.
Thank you for the question. We provide information on mobile carrier IPs; however, we do not identify SatCOM or terrestrial IPs at this moment for our standard products.
On the API side
We provide the IP to Carrier detection service on the Business Plan (Docs). The API response will contain the
carrier key if it is an carrier IP address.
On the database side
We also have the IP to Carrier database as well. The link to the sample and some docs.
On verifying the accuracy of the geolocation information
We have a custom database called, Detailed IP to Geolocation database, which comes with the
radius accuracy field that enables you to make decisions about the accuracy of our data.
Let me know if you have any followup questions. Thanks
