Dialup slip server location AT & T

This is a bit of an odd question, but here goes.
I receive emails from a business associate with headers among others that does not make sense.
As I understand AT&T dialup services seemingly designate server names by region.
e.g. the headers contain

  (slip-32-100-92-238.ga.us.prserv.net[32.100.92.238]
  (slip-12-65-150-29.mis.prserv.net[12.65.150.29]
  (slip-32-102-139-161.qu.ca.prserv.net[32.102.139.161]

No one in his right mind will dialup to different state access numbers while in yet another state.

My question is: I am right or wrong to assume that these servers are designated only for dialups in that specific state and area and how do I verify it?

Solving both gets the points.

Thanks

http://www.geobytes.com/IpLocator.htm?GetLocation seems to suggest that you are wrong in your first question assuming that each state has its own block of ips. 12.65.150.29 appears to be from california. As for question number 2, use the above link :)
