IP Location service

API change history

This API is an IP information service that converts a mobile visitor's IP address into approximate geographical location. The service currently offers daily-updated mobile IP information for the following countries:

[India 🇮🇳] Airtel 4G, Jio 4G, Vodafone 4G, Idea 4G, Reliance, BSNL
[Indonesia 🇮🇩] XL 4G, Indosat 4G, Telekomsel 4G

Unlike similar services such as MaxMind GeoIP2 which work well for fixed-broadband internet, this API and underlying data-sets are designed from scratch for mobile-first apps and services.

Download-only endpoint for MMDB file.
