I have used a real tine lookup service for years to determine visitor location to country state city level based on ip address for my membership site.  I do a http request and it returns the locations. It is a paid service and I am willing to pay for this information so I can display appropriate mateial matching the visitors locations

The accurracy of this service had dropped.

Can anyone recommend a good subscription service - call real time, not load ips to my server

thanks
Ian

A lot of these service say only 60% accuracy to city level outside of USA  Both of the above performed poorly on some Austrlian IP's I tested on
