[arin-tech-discuss] SWIP and GeoIP

We have a customer who operates VPN services with us.  They have their 
own ARIN OrgID, and we would like to be able to reassign all their IP 
addresses to that organization (so that they can receive any abuse 
reports directly, rather then having to relay them).

They have reported to us that various GeoIP providers are using the 
location of the ARIN contact to determine where an IP is located. The 
customer would very much prefer that the location of the IPs match the 
datacenter's location, rather then the customer's location.

Does anyone have suggestions for handling this properly?  Looking at the 
data returned by WHOIS, it seems the only way they're going to be able 
to specify a location is by creating a separate organization and contact 
for each datacenter.  Is that the best solution here?
