After 4G, why are we pursuing the 5G network?

In telecommunications, 5G is the fifth generation technology standard for broadband
cellular networks, which cellular phone companies began deploying worldwide
in 2019, and is the planned successor to the 4G networks which provide
connectivity to most current cellphones. 5G networks are predicted to have
more than 1.7 billion subscribers worldwide by 2025, according to the GSM Association.
Like its predecessors, 5G networks are cellular networks, in which the
service area is divided into small geographical areas called cells. All 5G wireless
devices in a cell are connected to the Internet and telephone network by radio
waves through a local antenna in the cell. The main advantage of the new networks is that they will have greater bandwidth,
giving higher download speeds, eventually up to 10 gigabits per second
(Gbit/s). Due to the increased bandwidth, it is expected the networks will increasingly
be used as general internet service providers for laptops and desktop
computers, competing with existing ISPs such as cable internet, and also
will make possible new applications in internet-of-things (IoT) and machine-tomachine
areas. 4G cellphones are not able to use the new networks, which
require 5G-enabled wireless devices. When product launch into market, it needs packaging to draw customer attention
in shop display. The packaging external dimensions may be limited by the
chain store display rack setup and it also affect the hang hole dimension. There
always a hang hole for blister or clamshell packing, but there is no international
standard for it. There is a standard hang hole size by Remotec but not international
