A year and a half after announcing it would roll out to a group of cities in Metro Atlanta, Google Fiber is set to host a grand opening for their new offices at Atlanta’s Ponce City Market on Tuesday. Nine cities – Atlanta, Avondale Estates, Brookhaven, College Park, Decatur, East Point, Hapeville, Sandy Springs and Smyrna – will have the product available for residents. In a statement at the time about the announcement of Google Fiber last year, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed was effusive. “Google Fiber is the infrastructure for the next generation of innovation in Atlanta,” said Mayor Kasim Reed. “High-speed internet access is essential to participate in the 21st century economy. In addition to supporting our thriving tech and startup communities, Google Fiber will bring greater economic opportunities to every quadrant of the City, so that the next great business idea is just as likely to come from Southwest Atlanta as it is from any other neighborhood.”
