Two processes to IP Geolocation work.
1.) DNS - use LOC records. This does work, if the entity doing the query honors this. Step #2 may pick up from this.
2.) Email your location information to
a. IP Intelligence Support [support-ipintel at neustar.biz]
b. support at ip2location.com
The above locations have an update cycle of
www.ip2location.com 1st of month
www.neustar.biz whenever they feel like it seems sometimes twice a month
www.maxmind.com Every Tuesday
Google uses the neustar.biz database for geolocation.

He cannot change SWIPs for his customers IP addresses.
I think you're confused here. He very much does want the geo-ip for his IP space to be correct. I'm pretty sure by customers he means "internal customers".
Otherwise, why would he be talking about Google?

The important parts there being "regional DMZ's" and "within GM"
