Sharing his thoughts behind the campaign, Kiran Antony, CCO, Ogilvy South said, “This is the third campaign we are doing on ‘SpeedSeBadho’. Earlier 2 campaigns had a very different look and feel where we showed people thriving using Vi network. So when the brief came for this campaign, the challenge was to make it look different from the other 2 campaigns. We have used an interesting treatment where there are almost 35 shots in a 30 seconder. It’s like a short film condensed in 30 seconds”.

The 10 Week long campaign went live on 23rd October, 2021 during the start of Super 12 stage matches of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

GIGAnet is built on 5G architecture and is the result of the largest network integration completed in record time and the first-of-its-kind spectrum refarming exercise in the world.
