Accessing assets hosted on Contentful CDN in China

Hi, we’re planning a website build for our office in China. They can access the Contentful console without issues it seems. However, when visiting our global site (which delivers assets via the Contentful CDN) they’ve noted that the assets are slow to load. This is expected given China’s approach to firewalling externally hosted content.

I was wondering if anybody had tackled this issue at all? One solution could be to copy over all assets during the build process (for a Gatsby site) to the hosting provider (Netlify) – but in my experience this can lead to very long build times which only get worse as more content is added.

Any advice would be much appreciated.
