That's not really great for 5G. That's 104 mbps. 4G LTE can theoretically go to about 150.
A good solid 5G connection can get you 30+ MBps on steam so you must be quite far from a 5G Node or have obstacles in the way.
If he's just getting off a 1-3mbps rural connection, he's probably very happy with what he's got. I can get gigabit internet here, but there's no reason unless you're running a business or a bunch of servers.
