Nominatim replacement

Given that Mapquest Nomitatim search data is now old and no longer updated, what should I use as a replacement for geocoding and reverse geocoding queries? While there is the http://www.mapquestapi.com/geocoding/v1/reverse reverse geocoding API, the results tend to be very inaccurate. For 62.67405, 31.04859 reverse geocoding gives me a nearby lake; Mapquest Nominatim search provides a wrong street and radius search gives nothing.

This is most frustrating since Openstreetmap Nominatim does have a perfectly accurate result https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/ui/reverse.html?lat=62.67405&lon=31.... (Härmönkankaantie, Ilomantsi), but I can't seem get this correct result from any Mapquest query.

Nominatim and the reverse
Nominatim and the reverse geocode API are the two options that MapQuest offers.

Why is Nominatim data no longer updated?

MQBrianCoakley, can you tell us why MapQuest does not update Nominatim data anymore, given that your own reverse geocoding data seems inferior?
