When I run the network connectivity test for Office 365 it shows our network egress location as KS, which is not correct, we are in Philadelphia, PA. As I understand it, Microsoft makes this determination based off our public IP address (per this: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/enterprise/office-365-network-mac-perf-onboarding-too...), which I confirmed using an IP Location service that the IP shows as geographically in Philadelphia. Is this something Microsoft needs to look at? Is there anything we can do on our end to correct this?
