Random City in Metrics

I have set up a dashboard to show the sessions broken out by city and it's only been released to our city, so 9 out of 10 are related to our area. There is one that isn't close to us that appears. It's 4 hours away, but it has the second most sessions. Any idea why this would be?

Geo reports are not entirely accurate. They are based on reverse IP lookup in most cases and other data (cell tower, wifi, etc.) so it could be a strange ISP thing, VPN, etc.
