Even though 4G technology is still under development, many investors are currently working to advance the following type of internet networks identified as 5G. This research was to investigate the factors affecting the acceptance of 5G technology in Iran among university students in Tehran Province. About 238 students were randomly selected in this study from universities in Tehran. The main method for data collection and analysis is to provide an electronic questionnaire related to the model. Data analysis was performed using structural equation modeling method and PLS software. The results showed that the quality of technology has a positive influence on perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, trust and perceived enjoyment. Quality has a positive influence on perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness and trust, while there is no direct relationship between perceived enjoyment and acceptance to use 5G technology.
