Virgin Media campaign celebrates ten years of broadband

Virgin Media has created an online time capsule to celebrate people’s favourite content on the web from the past decade of broadband.

The 10 Things Project asks users to nominate their favourite or most memorable moments from the past ten years to make an online timeline which can then be shared on social networks.

The site visualises the memories using a range of graphics, including a record player to play the song of the decade, a dream dinner party table and a map of dream destinations.

Sonia Sudhakar, head of online marketing at Virgin Media, said, “The brilliance of the web has bought us a huge amount of entertainment, communication and information. The 10 Things Project celebrates broadband’s first ten years with a tribute to the way it has impacted our lives, creating a snapshot of the personalities, media, memories and those all important ’LOLcats’ which have helped shape the last decade.”

The website was created by marketing agency Start Creative.
