EE users over at www.reddit.com/r/FortniteBR are currently having problems using 4G. Fortnite was released on the AppStore yesterday since the big hype around I thought i'd give it a try as I play on console little did i know that I can't play the game via 4G and only Wifi. Other users on different networks have confirmed that they work on 4G so it's not Epic Games (Developers of Fortnite) EE is the biggest leading network. What's the deal? Hope someone can give some information so I can pass on over at Reddit.

Ok so I got setup and was able to try out on wifi ( looks like a fun game )
i then closed the app fully and removed it from the switcher. I then launched the app when connected to cellular data. I then got this
But this is what I did to get it working on cellular data (. Yes it does work )
I closed the app fully/removed it from the switcher. ( this on its own didn’t work )
I did the above again but.
I then turned off cellular data for the app and for the device and then back on and tried again no joy.
I did both above steps again but this time
I turned off the device and then rebooted the device.
I launched the app and hey presto it works on cellular data

So it looks like a one off that I got it to work as nothing is working now not even 3G. I’ve tried everything I can think of but I’ll nit give up yet. This might take a bit longer than I first thought. I’ll be back.

I’m now getting failed to login on wifi. I think the server might be having issues as well.

Each time I try to login it’s taking longer and longer on the count down timer. It’s now over 4 minutes but originally is was less than 10seconds. It really looks like the servers are starting to get hit hard. So if there is a cellular issue there is now a server issue so I don’t know at present how to figure this out. This long login time is on wifi also.
