Geolocation Data : MAX MIND - Out of Sync

Hey Paschal,

I've had this same issue previously with some geolocation DBs not
reflecting locations correctly. I managed to fix the issue by maintaining a
public RFC8805 <> geofeed and
submitting it to the various DB providers via email and allowing them to
poll it frequently for any updates. Here are a majority of the emails you
would need to contact with your published geofeed, if you choose to
implement one:

   - support at
   - support at
   - support at
   - correction at
   - ip-data at
   - ipintel at
   - privacy at
   - support at

Feel free to use the following template using the subject of "Geofeed for
<ASN>" which I successfully used to have the above providers update their
databases (with a majority of updates published within a week or so):

> Please use this geofeed for our IPs going forward.
> <Link_to_published_geofeed>
> Thanks.

Hope this information helps accomplish what you need!
