Lag for sovereign

I’m in Illinois and I picked U.S. east for my sovereign world but seem to be getting lag. It’s only a little rough to play during the weekend so I’m still able to enjoy it. Just wanted to know should I of picked a different zone? I lived on dzassak with no issues ever and that’s EU so I’m stumped as to why this server gives me more of a hassle than dzassak. Also to note I didn’t start having lag issues until i opened up the storage on my beacon reclaim. Now that I have accessed to all my stuff through that beacon I wonder if that’s causing a strain on the server. Idk
