Why not? When 4G came out we weren't kept at 3G. I don't understand this stall to going to 5G, especially now that Virgin has rolled it out, at a good plan. But to answer your question, I feel my service is a bit laggy. It could be my location too. I'm not sure.

Yes, I know that was only a year later and it's already been a couple of years since Rogers introduced 5G. However, there is a difference between the two situations. The WCDMA (UMTS) or '3G' network was handling most of the call and some data traffic on one or two frequencies for all of Rogers branded customers. Even if all Rogers customers used LTE for data, all their calls would still have been routed through the '3G' network because voice-over-LTE (voLTE) hadn't been introduced yet (announced 2015; see here). All Rogers calls & all of Fido's data and calls & all of Chatr's data and calls & all of the other MNVO data and calls would have made the '3G' network practically unusable, even for calls. Opening Fido customers up to LTE at that time freed some of that burden on the '3G' network.
The situation is different now as LTE is much more capable than 3G. However, that is beside the point...

Unfortunately, I'm not sure whether access to 5G would improve on your situation. Generally, the travel distance and penetrability of the frequencies used for 5G would be much shorter, requiring many more small cells to cover the same area as an LTE tower. If your issue is related to your location, it might also affect access to 5G. Of course, it's also possible that there might be a small cell close to your location.
I do understand people wanting access to 5G for various reasons, though....
Hope this helps 😀
