You'll not always let people from Ireland in. In the past 3 and UPC have
used UK IPs
People on UTV sometimes use the UTV N.I. Proxy settings so they get
more BBC content. (possible selling point for UTV dsl?)
There are over 2000 satellite users
So lots of future potential for blocking people.
last I looked 3 *STILL* used only one or a few IPs with transparent
proxy for whole country. Website: You have used your download Quota for
where the database says the IP is (i.e. Limerick) may be fictional.
Either some ISPs have wierd networks, or don't update stuff.
The new Digiweb Mobile service unlike GSM/GRPS/EDGE/HSDPA has the IP
associated like Static with the modem's MAC (your PC is DHCP, but no
matter which mast in whole country you always get same IP). This allows
handover between masts without losing a session (try it on 3, O2 or
Vodaphone :-) ).
If you do a localised page and Rights Management is not involved let
people override it.
People my work in a different County to Home.
