cant say I have seen it before but not really that surprising as they are all part of the same company...

edit : mine says callplus ....

As hyperman points out, they are part of M2 group.

Would not surprise me if some rearrangement or sharing has gone on somewhere and crossed lines of who "owns" the ip.

They are probably sharing the IP address pool - as above, they have the same parent company anyway.

If you do a WHOIS on your IP address (I am looking at the IP you used to post here) then some databases say it's Orcon.

IP databases are not 100% accurate so I wouldn't be worried about this at all.
