I dial into my company network from all over the world. No matter which
contintent I am on, my IP address will look to have the same location.
Interestingly, we are headquartered in Bedford, MA and networldmap
thinks we are in Nashua NH.
My guess is one of our Nashua employees added the info to networld map,
either first or most recently, hence the determination that, that is
where I am from.

Also, I think to the outside world all of our employees seem to have the
same IP address.
