The move follows signing of an agreement between telecoms company Telenor and China-headquartered technology firm Huawei.

This took place at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, which started on 27th February and ends Thursday this week.

Magnus Zetterbeg, CTO of Telenor Norway, calls 5G “a revolutionary change in technology that will become the foundation for the future’s digital infrastructure.”

“The capacity of 5G is enormous and can be compared with an eight-lane highway with a speed limit of 1,000 km/h (some 621 mph),” he told publication Hegnar.

Units within coverage will reach speeds of between 1 and 10 Gbps (gigabits per second).

As well as a platform for the mobile network, 5G can also be used for systems such as intelligent traffic management, as well as self-driving vehicles.

Commercial launch of the 5G network is expected to be around 2020.
