Electronic – How to connect these pads


I have trouble connecting a THT HDMI Connector to a pcb:

The HDMI Connector I'm talking about is this.

The holes are too close to go in between them:

(The blue line is 0.15mm thick)

Is this usual (such close and small holes)?
Should I be using a pcb manufacturer who can produce thin pcb traces? (like 0.10mm?)

Or just route the trace other way around?

Options (in order of my preference):

  1. Route such that you don't have to do that.
  2. Make that pads octagonal.
  3. Make the pads as thin as possible.
  4. Go to thinner traces (if possible).
  5. Utilize additional layers.
