Telus is Forcing me to connect to California Servers Instead of Oregon Fortnite Servers


As this post and this post shows, customers who have Telus are experiencing major ping issues when playing Fortnite. Essentially, anyone with Telus finds themselves connecting to California servers instead of Oregon servers which result in high ping (70-80+) which has a noticeable effect in games. After someone reached out to the Fortnite devs, they were left with the impression that this issue is a Telus issue and not a Fortnite server issue. It could very well be a Fortnite server issue but I'm wondering if someone could shed some light on this issue. It seems present for customers who have Telus in Alberta.
