This is not really a problem nor complaint, per se, but more of an observation. The location listed in the "Eddie" interface is not necessarily where you pop out of the VPN tunnel. I was on Octans, presumably in Atlanta, GA, USA, however if I do an internet speed test, it picks up my location as being in Arizona! "Chameleon" really lives up to the name as it says "Dallas, TX," but instead I'm getting out in Los Angeles, California!

 

As long as the speed is working well, it should be fine, but I think it would be better to have the Eddie list match the actual locations, rather than some probably historic one. Sometimes one wants to have the tunnel as close to the source website as possible - streaming a local television station, for example, that may not have the best bandwidth over longer distances. Being a few hundred, or a thousand or so miles off from where you think you are could make the difference.

There are 2 things you can expect from AirVPN - that the server is physically located in the stated country, and that it's

location is correct on Maxmind GeoIP DB, which is one the most commonly used GeoIP databases.

Currently all servers except Tegmen are properly geolocated on Maxmind, that means ~99.5% of the available servers.

Facebook and Google are exceptions that cannot be fixed upon request.
