Cloudflare's geolocation vs other third-party services like Maxmind

Does CF use third-party geolocation service to identify the location of IPs? Is it more accurate than the Maxmind service?

I do believe they use MaxMind or some similar service. More accurate it’s hard to estimate.

Can’t remember where I read it, but CF can use a mix of IP geolocation data sources but predominantly it’s Maxmind.

Yeah, it’s mostly consistent with MaxMind with some changes.
