An Odeon cinema is set to become the world's first 5G-based cinema.

The cinema, based in Oslon, Norway, is currently trialling the mobile network's ability to deliver digital movie files while providing guests with internet access at its designated wifi zones.

Odeon Norway's COO, Jon Einar Sivertsen told ZDNet that the project is still very much in its infancy, however the results appear to be overwhelmingly positive.

"We're not dependent on the 5G network now," he said, "but it's been shown that 5G is giving us download rates we wouldn't normally get. We transfer the movies to local servers, so playback happens locally. We've also tested live streaming, which also works excellently."

Abraham Foss, CEO of Telia Norway, said in a statement: "We're starting the 5G development from a customer perspective, and are exploring use cases and service scenarios first, and will develop the technology from that, that way we can identify customer demands and address business opportunities."

"We are aiming to develop 5G-based solutions industry by industry and area by area," Foss added.
