Hong-Kong citizens being unable to upload big content to Commons

Emmanuel Engelhart-5
Hi

It seems that people in Hong-Kong are not able to upload big content
(for example videos) to Commons due to (what looks like to be) a lack of
connectivity between their Internet provider and the Wikimedia
datacenters (but Youtube works well).

I reported about that on Bugzilla:
https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60283

Surprisingly (to me), nobody from the WMF ops team has answered to the
multiple comments so far and the ticket has been categorized with a low
priority.

Thus, is that really a minor issue? Or is Bugzilla the wrong place to
talk about that?

Regards
Emmanuel

Faidon (who knows about network) replied on the bug asking for more
informations.  Basically "hong-kong" is too vague when it comes to
internet connectivity.

Things seem to be more and more concrete on the Bugzilla ticket.
Thank you to both of you for trying to get this fixed.
