GEO Targeting Issues with Sprint Wireless Broadband

Testing my new Sprint Wireless Broadband turned up something that I didn't quite expect in regards to Geo targeting because the IP addresses used all are attributed to Southern California and I'm in Northern California.

I understand that privacy is a concern and you don't want people to know exactly where you are but being off by 600 miles is a bit much as nothing works right that tries to Geo target and some things can become down right annoying, such as AdSense showing you ads for local shit in Irvine California.

Nothing show stopping, just annoying.

This may happen because they fails to target the business region.
Is there any meaning for such campaign?
