5G is the fifth generation cellular network technology. The 5G mobile wireless communication networks is the newest revolution in the mobile industry which has the capacity to transform the mobile world within a very high bandwidth and hence projected to be a worldwide standard network. Despite the truly momentous promising projections of 5G, there are a whole lot of dangers and challenges the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) are been silent to. This is the premise of this paper. The paper is on the 5G network: dangers and challenges of a worldwide standard network. The paper first focused on the essence of 5G network being a mobile wireless communication network in the telecommunications industry. From the projections of the network, the paper further made discourses on the benefits and spectrum requirements of 5G network. The role of ITU as a UN agency that coordinates the shared global use of the radio spectrum promotes international cooperation in assigning satellite orbits and works to improve telecommunication infrastructure and development in the globe was not left out. Key elements of the 5G network were also highlighted. The paper finally ended with the discourses on the dangers and challenges of 5G network. Based on the discourses, it was recommended that since the dangers associated with 5G is still under contention from different scientists, 3GPP and ITU should formally make their findings and come up with a common worldwide statement on the dangers of 5G network.
