Though, 5G technology is researched and conceptualized to solve all radio signal problems and hardship of mobile world, but because of some security reason and lack of technological advancement in most of the geographic regions, it has following shortcomings −
Technology is still under process and research on its viability is going on.
The speed, this technology is claiming seems difficult to achieve (in future, it might be) because of the incompetent technological support in most parts of the world.
Many of the old devices would not be competent to 5G, hence, all of them need to be replaced with new one — expensive deal.
Developing infrastructure needs high cost.
Security and privacy issue yet to be solved.
