Fortnite times out and lags

I upgrade my Cox Internet package, reset everything, got a new router gateway. Even fully formatted the Xbox and reinstalled everything and I still get massive lag and time outs when playing Fortnite.

Cox is the only Internet option where I live other than my phone actually which works a little better event though I only get one bar here.

Why is Cox having such major issues with Fortnite and is there anything we can do?

CenturyLink is available here, but with a max of 1.5 MBPS. I don't think that enough to watch high def videos through.

    This is probably not an issue related directly to any particular game. Post your full modem signals and full modem logs to receive advice.

      My other games seem to be fine. It's only FortNite that has issues and they are really bad. 10-50% packet loss every minute or so. When I switch to  my phone's Internet there is no packet loss but it's slower loading.

      I think this is a specific issue with COX and FortNite.
