While my phone supports 5G I don't think my plan employs it in my case although in South Africa we have 5G coverage in all the big centres.
In general I don't pay much heed to these things and just take it as it comes, but by nature I tend to resist new technologies (not as a matter of principle but simply because I suppose I'm an old soul).
I hate the fact that I'm being forced to use certain things on a lot of fronts. First up, I'm a teacher at a secondary school and as staff we have to rely on WhatsApp groups to get most of the important info that flies about in the general daily running of the school. Furthermore WhatsApp is the learners' preferred mode of getting info from teachers so I am forced to be on many little groups whereas if I had my way I would absolutely not even have WhatsApp installed on my phone.
Another thing that annoys me is how everything switched to streaming and downloads. I have over 2000 CDs that I've bought over the years. I've ripped many of them and have them in my iTunes library and have since added many albums that I've bought from the iTunes store and I'm fine with that, but Apple keeps on trying to get me to subscribe to Apple Music which I would hate. I prefer to own my music and listen to it whether I'm online or not. I also like to browse through my albums and listen to things I forgot I had whereas if I just streamed music I would never be reminded of something I perhaps listened to 20 years back, is that not so? Also not everything is available for streaming.
But now I've ran into the latest obstacle and that is that movies have gone the same route and although I don't quite own 2000 DVDs I own a lot and DVD players have become virtually extinct. My CD drive in my 2012 MacBook wouldn't play the disks half the time and whereas I manage to rip some using Handbrake some just wouldn't rip. On top of that if you want to buy a new movie/documentary/concert video/whatever I have to do so through Apple TV or Amazon which would allow me to play those only through their app. I would be fine with buying these online as long as I ended up with a normal mp4 file which I could copy to an external harddrive or compact disc (for argument's sake) extract bits from, in short, do whatever I wanted (with what I own) rather than having it be a very unique file tied to a very unique app which might not run on every device on which I want to watch the file and which you probably can't even locate in a folder someplace on your computer. What was easier in the past than visiting some friend and taking along that DVD which you wanted to share with them and pop it into their DVD player? Now you have to make sure their internet speed will be up to it and that they have a smart TV, etc.
In South Africa we have been notified recently that transmitting for analogue TVs will cease from Jan 2023 and everyone has to have a Smart TV if they wish to continue to watch local networks. I don't even own a dumb TV, being uninterested in Netflix and what it offers and I do have some understanding for the course things take in this regard, but still it irritates me when I hear these types of announcements.
