On Aug. 9, Google announced that Fiber is available in some parts of Atlanta and it has been available in some apartment buildings. The company gave no dates for when Fiber service will be available in other cities like Decatur and Avondale Estates.

When Decaturish reached out to Google to ask whether the company is exploring wireless options for the Atlanta market, the company said its plans for Atlanta have not changed.

“We’re continuing to work closely with city leaders to bring Google Fiber to many neighborhoods in Atlanta,” a company spokesperson said. “In fact, just last week we announced Atlantans in five Fiberhoods can now sign up for Google Fiber services. For all other current cities, it’s business as usual.”
