MaxMind Free Data Very Inaccurate

My goodness everyone! That Maxmind data is very inaccurate, but only when you disect it closely. There should be a discussion on their free data before implementing it in Piwik and give a bad name to Piwik. Their data is innacurate and although they claim a 99.5% accuraccy, I found it to be more like in the low 80%! I’m serious folks. Do your homework, Surely, there must be better out there…
