We self-publish geolocation of our IP ranges and work with geoip databases to ensure that this information is up-to-date. If you see something out of place there, please let us know. We'll make sure to update the geolocation of any IP address.

As for possibly being blocked by, that would depend on how they determine and implement any traffic blocking. To see where your connection gets dropped, you can run an MTR report. If there's a connection issue without our network, we'll want to know. Our NetOps team usually asks us to have customers run an MTR with these arguments to get more helpful information from them:

mtr -rwbzc100 $IPAddress/$URL

You can use the destination IP address or the URL you're trying to access.

Should you find that the traffic is getting dropped after it leaves our network, there may not be anything that we can do to mitigate that.
