I live in an area which is significantly closer to London than to Manchester. However, when visiting 126.96.36.199/help , it tells me that I am connected to Manchester (MAN) instead of London (LHR). I know this because my previous ISP (Sky) allowed me to connected to LHR automatically but after switching to a new provider (Vodafone) it is now defaulted to MAN.
Is this caused by my ISP’s data center location? After searching my IP location on some top google result websites, it showed that the location is actually closer to Manchester than London?
