Playing synced content freezes when cellular signal switches or is spotty

Anyone else having issues playing synced content (videos) when cellular signal is spotty? My playback freezes. The only work around is activating airplane mode while I am watching a video. It seems to be trying to connect to the media server when trying to play local synced content. I have noticed that while playing local content, the media server displays the video under the "Now Playing" section.

The only "useable" workaround I have is to deny Plex app to the cellular service. Now, I only notice a "hiccup" in the playback when signal is lost/regained. I can't use the Plex app to access my content while on cellular service but at least I can watch my videos.
