Why doesn’t my data work with Fortnite?

My data works fine with everything else but on the game Fortnite (which is now on mobile) it won’t let me queue into a match. Have I got some sort of restriction on my data up? Or is it something to do with the Fortnite app itself? I should also mention, it let’s me queue into matches with my WiFi and other people’s hotspot data.

@alisumali  As you can see your not alone with this and there is no  restriction on your account,  I believe it’s the Epic server that need a update for this to work.

No I disagree. All my friends on other carriers are able to play no problem so please don’t try to blame epic. It’s clearly EE!

@Henryjohnson02  What works for one network doesn’t mean it’s not a Epic issue with a EE connection or your other apps will not work on cellular data would they.

@lewcoll  You’ll probably get an app update that will correct this.

Other service providers are having the same issue. My friend who is with Virgin is having the same issue, but downloading a free VPN from the app store seems to fix the issue if that’s any help.
