SouthWest Transit is implementing a new Wi-Fi system because the "All Access" model is exceeding our allowable data caps and making it cost-prohibitive to operate.
In order to improve speeds for those using Wi-Fi to work on the bus, the new system will restrict access to:
- Downloading of Files
- OS System Updates - Windows Updates
- App Downloads
- Audio Streaming (Pandora, Spotify, etc.)
- Video Streaming (Hulu, Netflix, etc.)
Limiting the above items will increase Wi-Fi reliability, creating a better experience for all users. Many apps, such as Netflix, allow for downloading to your device. With this option, you can download your music or videos at home and listen/watch on the bus without using any data! Check your app for details.
