WFT with 5G cell support. Would you use it & how? If you think its a bad idea why?

With the advancements of cell networks, would you find use of a WFT accessory that had 5G cell network support?

I wonder if it is possible that Canon embed this technology into future WFT devices so that we could have an option to attached a mobile carrier data plan to a WFT device?

I think if Canon were to implement cell network support, Canon would also need add a few new features to the WFT devices; like a secure SFTP protocol, as well as a VPN client.

Background info about 5G (IMT-2020).
The IMT-2020 Standard is the requirements issued by the ITU Radiocommunication Sector of the International Telecommunication Union for 5G networks, devices and services. It states that 5G networks have a minimum maximum download peak data rate of 20,000 Mbps and upload of 10,000 Mbps. The "air latency" target is 1-4 milliseconds.

There are real world test that show users currently getting over 1,700 Mbps download and 130 Mbps upload (carrier throttled of course, because the IMT-2020 standard require that the networks support much faster minimum maximums).

Real world test showing users getting over 1,700 Mbps download & 130 Mbps upload. Keep in mind that is carrier throttled. The 5G standard requires networks support a minimum maximum download of 20,000 Mbps  and upload of 10,000 Mbps.
