Moncton, N.B. — Codiac Transpo buses in Moncton will soon block riders from streaming movies and music in an effort to offer more consistent Wi-Fi service to everyone, CBC News reported.

"In recent months, we've been receiving complaints regarding the inconsistency of the service and, after doing some research, we have found that when one or two users are streaming a movie for example, it affects the level of service for other customers," Sr. Transit Planner Marie-Claire Pierce says.

Some customers have reported slow internet service, while others couldn't connect at all, according to the CBC News report. Pierce says Codiac Transpo is already installing devices on buses that will block Internet-streaming sites such as Netflix, YouTube and internet radio. For the full story, click here.
