Maybe 5G is a good analogy for painting the Forth Bridge?
The term "painting the Forth Bridge" is a euphemism for a never-ending task.  For 40 years a team of painters continually painted the Bridge, as soon as they finished they had to start again.  Typically it took 4 years to paint the bridge. 

However, in 2011 technology developments meant that the new paint would last for 20 years.

5G may just be another "lick of paint" with a very smooth transition from 4G/LTE to 5G but the industry hopes that it will not be neccessary to move to a "6G".  

Hopefully, just like the Forth Bridge, 5G technology will be disruptive and have a long-term influence on the industry's innovation cycle.
