Hello Jason,

thanks for reporting back.

I just downloaded the current version of GeoIPASNum2.zip
(SHA1: c72a275c66cededf47157e3cea4625342b85bf94)
to have a short look at it and I'm not sure the problem is fixed completely.

While the number of unnamed AS entries significantly improved (unnamed
count is down to 1462 from >57k, still not back to ~500 (Feb 2016), but
just comparing absolute numbers without considering total entries in
each CSV might be a bit flawed metric anyway),
incorrect AS names apparently remain:

I searched for the two examples I gave in my last email:

AS8708 and AS12741
they are still incorrectly named "73-75 Dr. Staicovici" and "Warszawa
02-822" in your DB, which means the problem still persists.

actual names:

thank you for looking into this again,
