Am trying to understand why some IPs like this one shows results in different country. This below output is from using IP Information function provided by DNSStuff.com. This was a key IP in trace-route where switching/redirecting the route was taken place.

After doing a couple other searches, it looks like DNSStuff.com is probably aggregating Geolocation data from 3 different services and displaying the results. The 3 original source probably just have different data. All 3 recognize the IP as belonging to Level 3 Communications, however Level 3 is a worldwide company and can move its IPs wherever it needs to.
