How accurate is Geolocation?

The accuracy of web browser geolocation, like the sample you see on this page, can depend of several things. The most common sources of location information are IP address, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth MAC address, radio-frequency identification (RFID), Wi-Fi connection location, or device Global Positioning System (GPS) and GSM/CDMA cell IDs. The location is returned with a given accuracy depending on the best location information source available. Browser geolocation can vary based on the quality and stability of these technologies.
