Fixing Google geolocation screwups

A friend of mine lives in Alabama and has business service from at&t.
But Google thinks he's in France.  We've checked for various
possibilities of VPNs and proxies and such, and it's pretty clear that
the Goog's geolocation for addresses around is screwed
up.  Bing and other services correctly find him in Alabama.

Poking around I see lots of advice about how to use Google's
geolocation data, but nothing on how to update it.  Anyone
know the secret?  TIA
