AT&T is my ISP, so why is "Total Server Solutions" showing up? I do not recognize this company. This is confusing me.

    Hi @Prac2cul1
    Thanks for your post. For ISP name detection, I would like to tell you that we use GEOIP2 City Database API by MaxMind. And they update their database every week. If the Fing App shows a different ISP name rather than what you use, It is because the same name is picked up GEOIP2 City Database. The ISP name is identified based on the public IP address by Fing App and then it is matched against the GEOIP2 City Database API.

    Hi @Pract2calOne, welcome to our community.
    I'm willing to bet that it has something to do with a sub-lease to AT&T.  Although doing a search on the company name leans more towards an outsourced IT solution.

    Thank you so much for your prompt response. It got me thinking... 🤔 and I realize now that it's probably due to my VPN. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it! 😊
