Virgin Media celebrates broadband anniversary with art


April 6, 2010

The cable broadband and TV provider Virgin Media is making plans to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the launch of broadband in the UK.

The plans include an art installation, which appears to serve two purposes for the company, the first being a donation of public art, but the second and more important reason is the subject matter.

The installation will be put on display at the South Bank Gallery in London.

It will be created by United Visual Artists using laser technology and will be called ‘Speed of Light’, no doubt a reference to the company’s fibre optic broadband service.

The installation is to be opened on the 9th April and, according to Virgin Media, it will add a bit of magic to the broadband services that we all take for granted.
