The evolution of 5G networks is causing concern when it comes to monitoring individuals for law enforcement agencies, their tools which currently work with 4G technology can’t be utilized on the 5G network. The plan was to have 5G network roll out by 2020, 2020 was supposed to be the year when we all would be using 5G networks for our various communications devices and applications, but at this moment only two major city has limited use of the 5G technology.
5G network Pros & Cons : Do you have the need for Speed
Pros of having 5G network

Cons of having 5G network
Law enforcement 5G network concerns
Law enforcement agencies claim they will be unable to monitor criminals, but Edward Snowden made it clear with the documents he had release that law enforcement don’t only monitor criminals, they take advantage of all citizen privacy. They themselves perform criminal activity against citizens.
5G network makes it difficult to stand with law enforcement agencies, but at the same time we understand the need to protect and serve to ensure public safety. The ability to monitor criminals "is one of the most important investigative tools that law enforcement and services have.
Nationwide 5G network concerns
The problem is much bigger than just challenges faced by law enforcement agencies. We need to understand the threats to personal and corporate data, to do so it is important to understand that there is already some controversy as to who is supplying the actual infrastructure for 5G: namely, Huawei, and why should one be concerned about Huawei? Huawei is alleged ties to the government of China. Okay, and what does that has to do with personal and corporate data? Well if the owned the infrastructure all data can be monitoring and send to other government agency, or supporting vendors, this data could include sensitive data, intellectual property, nation secrets and potential military data.
Cybercrime 5G network concerns
5G has 200 times more access points for hackers than existing networks, experts warn. Charles Eagan, BlackBerry Ltd.’s chief technology officer, agreed the network complexity and the expanded physical attack surfaces present a challenge for securing 5G networks.
With 5G network more system will stay continuously, giving attackers more possible of finding a vulnerable system to compromised at anytime, systems on wireless network are not patch/updated frequently.
Years of 5G hype will soon has giving way to 5G reality. Verizon has turned on 5G service for smartphones in select cities and announced which ones will be getting high-speed service next. Sprint flips the switch on its own 5G network, and AT&T and T-Mobile are both making progress in building out the next-generation wireless network. Are you ready for speed? Do you have the need for Speed.
