Maybe nobody has thought of shitting down the 5G networks in Australia yet?
I know why: 1st wave of covid-19 infections in Australia is still too low to reap the benefits of torching 5G towers.

"you basically march up to the machine, the machine's got the ALGOL system loaded, you run your programme, it produces gibberish"
When I was in the sixth form, one of my maths teachers had a contact at the local Poly. We were low priority, do we got to leave our precious punched tapes with the operator who would run it for us in time for us to pick up the gibberish the next day.
Needless to say I thought computers were complete bollocks.
A couple of years later when I was at University, and they had these lineprinter style terminals, I started to think wow, maybe there's something in this; soon after I got access to a green screen terminal.
The rest is history.
Good idea. Why don otherwise?
Another option is to stop printing.
I think I printed < 5 pages of A4 last year. Nothing yet this year.
I have a criminally slow HP LaserJet from around 2010 at home. This got a bit of a workout when the kids were still at school, I even bought some kind of toner refill in around 2015.
