This gives me _exactly_ the same results.
IP Address : 188.8.131.52
Location : AUSTRALIA,
Latitude / Longitude : -35.283 LATITUDE, 149.217 LONGITUDE
Connecting through : IINET LIMITED
So either I'm hiding in your basement, or it's returning this
latitude/longitude for a large number of users. (Given I'm in Sydney I'm
guessing it's the latter).
And Service 4 is similar: http://www.geobytes.com/IpLocator.htm

This one tells me that I'm in Perth at -31.9330, 115.8330. (I use iinet,
which is based in Perth).
