OVH Geolocated IPs

XIAOSpider97XIAOSpider97 Member, Provider

So I saw OVH's ASN on bgp.he.net and some IP ranges come with US flag, more are Canadian flag.

I ordered some additional IPs and chose US for geolocation, but they are still in 158.69.x.x range, whose flag is Canadian flag.

Then I ordered 1 Canadian IP and got 158.69.x.x as well.

Has anyone tried OVH geolocated IPs in Europe? Which range is your "geolocated" IP in?

  • Did you check MaxMind for geolocation?

    Actually I work for ipip.net, a company providing IP PHYSICAL location database...

    Yes I checked and seems that whole 158.69.x.x range is geolocated as "US" in Maxmind's DB.

    But then the problem still exist, while I ordered total 2 US IPs and 1 Canadian IP. All of three are in 158.69.x.x range and geolocated as "US" according to Maxmind.

    I have some UK IP addresses and depending on what service I use, they are UK, or they are French.

  • what is the price of an additional ip with ovh? 2 euros/m or 2 euros one time?

    Did your math take in the fact that OVH has never, ever, honored their IP contracts for end users?

    OVH has changed contracts multiple times on their IP addresses.

    A few years back they used to do the one-off payments like they do now. Once RIPE 'went dry', they changed everyone to monthly per IP address, and it was more than a EUR per IP address. This caused a lot of LE hosts that were there to pull out or close shop because their whole business was based there.

    They've returned to the one time $3 per address setup, but unless they plan to keep trying to find large open blocks they're bound to reneg on this pricing and go back to monthly costs.
