- Change to Comcast Business ISP name

We’ve updated any GeoIP database or service providing ISP and Organization data to return Comcast Business rather than Comcast Business Communications. We are doing so in order to use the trade name of the ISP and also because it is shorter.

Please note that if you use this data point, for example, to flag a visitor if they change ISP, you may need to adjust your implementation in order to avoid false positive or negative flags.

The following GeoIP databases and services are affected by this change:

  • GeoIP2 ISP database
  • GeoIP2 Enterprise database (Update will apply to November 15th release)
  • GeoIP Legacy ISP and Organization databases
  • GeoIP2 Precision and Legacy City Service
  • GeoIP2 Precision and Legacy Insights Service
