We have currently three sources
1.IPInfo DB service
3 Smart IP database
there are other free source databases at 1.
geonames Client Libraries focussing mainly on zipcodes but it can also work
2.GeoDataSource this requires registration to download
there should be away of fall back to source if any one of them is failing or make them commercial in due course ,the last one should be the Smart IP
also there are webservice systems, (I don't know how they work or how to put one of them to work for us)
the main idea is
1.to implement a fail-safe mechanism.
2.Reduce the load on the system
