Hello, Recently I have noticed that it looks like the Phoenix AirVPN servers (Bootes, Chalawan, Indus, Phoenix, Virgo) , Berlin AirVPN Server (Cujam) , and Barcelona AirVPN server (Eridanus) are not actually located where M247 claims they are located, and it appears M247 is misrepresenting the locations of these servers If you go to the status page of any "Phoenix" server for example https://airvpn.org/servers/Bootes/ you will see the latencies to other cities where AirVPN has servers, and it shows 0ms to Los Angeles, that wouldn't be physically possible if the Phoenix servers were truly located in Phoenix. This points to the Phoenix servers truly being hosted in Los Angeles Additionally, on a personal VPS server of mine which is located in Los Angeles, I get less than 1ms latency between my VPS in Los Angeles to the AirVPN "Phoenix" servers, which, again, points to the Phoenix servers truly being in Los Angeles, because this 1ms latency would not be physically possible between Los Angeles and Phoenix And if you go to the status page of the "Berlin" server https://airvpn.org/servers/Cujam/ It shows 0ms latency to Frankfurt, also not physically possible This points to the Berlin servers really being in Frankfurt And if you go to the status page of the "Barcelona" server https://airvpn.org/servers/Eridanus/ It shows 0ms latency to Madrid, again, not physically possible! This points to the Barcelona servers truly being hosted in Madrid M247 may say that if you do a WHOIS lookup on their Phoenix IP block, the description is "M247 Phoenix" but honestly this is not proof at all, as the network admins can set whatever netname and description they want when they're creating the inetnum object in their RIR's database. For additional proof other than the "Berlin" , "Barcelona", and "Phoenix" that Air has from M247, Here is M247's full list of locations according to their website You can see that neither Berlin, Phoenix, or Barcelona is on this list. https://m247.com/services/host/dedicated-servers/ From the website, their locations: Europe: Amsterdam, NL Belgrade, RS Brussels, BE Bucharest, RO Budapest, HU Copenhagen, DK Dublin, IE Frankfurt, DE London, UK Manchester, UK Madrid, ES Milan, IT Oslo, NO Paris, FR Prague, CZ Sofia, BG Stockholm, SE Warsaw, PL Vienna, AT Zurich, CH North America: Dallas, TX, USA Los Angeles, CA, USA Miami, FL, USA New York Metro Area, USA (Secaucus, NJ) Montreal, QC, CA Asia and Middle East: Dubai, UAE Hong Kong, HK Singapore, SG Tokyo, JP Oceania: Sydney, AU Based on this information it is clear to see that M247 is misrepresenting the locations of AirVPN's Phoenix, Berlin, and Barcelona servers, From being a customer of Air for as long as I have, I can tell that the Air staff are honest and they have provided and continue to provide a great and true service, this is extremely evident for example by looking at how AirVPN left France because of the concerning legal framework there, and why AirVPN does not operate in Poland or Italy for similar reasons, even though other VPNs gladly operate services in those countries. It's clear as day to see that AirVPN is not deceptive or untruthful at all, so I am absolutely not accusing Air at all of participating in this misrepresentation, it just seems to me like Air was duped by M247 into buying these servers that are reported to be in a different location than the one they are truly in. So given that the 5 Phoenix AirVPN servers , the 1 Berlin server, and 1 Barcelona server are falsely geolocated, it would be good idea for Staff to replace those servers with ones that are actually in the reported locations, or just change the reported location of those servers in Eddie to reflect the true locations.
