Hello, is it possible to detect the ip "State" without paying for the service.
With the company below, they will able to help me to detect the ip address, but I can't afford their price, just too expensive, I'm trying to figure out to get the php script or any other script which allow me to detect the ip infos.

They get the info from site users. I think there is no other way to collect such information and let it be downloaded for free.

This is a free csv file that contains a list of IPs in a csv format http://ip-to-country.webhosting.info/book/print/5 and is up to date. There is example code on that page in php to use the csv file to detect the country along with the download link.

Of course it is not. Providers can route IP as they like inside their network, so most IP collecting organizations collect addresses based on experts or customers input. It takes time and effort - that's why the databases are not free.
