Geolocation testing question


#1

Right now I’m using friends in different countries to test the Geolocation service provided by CloudFlare and getting inconsistent results. CloudFlare is showing US to my friends in Mexico and Canada, but correct in Europe (so far).

Is there a way to test Geolocation without purchasing a VPN?
And how accurate is the service?
Is there a caching reason why my friends in Canada and Mexico would see US?

I would try services like PIngdom and GTMetrix and test your site from their different locations. Both of them give you waterfall listings of your resources, each with their own set of response headers.
