Final Reminder: Mobile carriers are sunsetting 3G. Have you checked to see if your ELD is affected?

As we shared via email on November 1, 2021 and November 19, 2021, mobile carriers are shutting down their 3G networks to make room for more advanced network services, including 5G. As a result, many older cell phones and other mobile devices will be unable to use data services.
