Hosted S3 endpoint EU endpoint is in USA?

I did a reverse IP on the S3 endpoint URIs. US was located in New Jersey and AP was in Singapore as generally expected. However, EU was ALSO located in New Jersey. Is there a plan to host an endpoint in Europe?

The IP location database you are using is not accurate. If you traceroute the IP, the packets route to France/Germany (from my location in the UK):

As @Stob already mentioned, the IP address space we own is currently being geolocated into the US for the EU1 endpoints. However we will be using this IP globally using BGP fairly soon and thus you will be located to the closest gateway automatically. Similarily as to how 8.8.8.8 and 1.1.1.1 are served to you.

Is there a timeline for this change?

Which change specifically? the switch to the globally used IP addresses? Or are you referring to the change of locality?
