CenturyLink’s national ad campaign, “Two Sides,” reinforces how the company improves the lives of its customers by connecting them to the power of the digital world. From major cities to small towns, the company provides a connection and innovative platform for collaboration. That power of connectivity made Jones an overnight singing success after a classmate posted a video of him on the internet that received a million views in 24 hours. CenturyLink and Jones turned that experience into a campaign showing how broadband service can help unite people and celebrate talent on a global scale when enabled by CenturyLink.
