Verizon was launching Instant Internet–a superfast internet 20x faster than the average. But internet speeds that fast weren’t just for anyone. The people who really needed it were gamers. How do we reach a community who spent most of their time on consoles and not on traditional media outlets? We introduced the first-ever brand campaign built exclusively on the Xbox platform. A unique collaboration with Xbox, we created a portal on the console. 24 hours before the official Halo Wars 2 release, we dropped a game in the portal. The catch, the portal was only open for seconds. Fans followed pro E-Sport players to find out when the portal was open. Gamers who acted fast got a free copy of the game. Those who acted the fastest got rewarded with a one-on-one competition against pro Halo players broadcasted live on Twitch. That day #FiosInstant was NYC's #1trending topic.
