Google has announced it has begun construction on its Google Fiber high speed Internet service in Midtown Atlanta.

Here’s the statement from Google:

“Today, we’re ready to start building our Google Fiber network in metro Atlanta. With the design of our Google Fiber network completed, you’ll see us around town digging and stringing fiber cables so that we can deliver Google Fiber’s superfast Internet to the city. As we lay thousands of miles of fiber-optic cable throughout Metro Atlanta, we’ll keep residents updated along the way.” — Fabiola Charles, Google Fiber Community Impact Manager, Metro Atlanta

Construction work on other areas of the metro receiving Google Fiber,  including Decatur, Sandy Springs, and Brookhaven, is expected to begin the coming months.

Both The Decatur Minute and Decaturish have more on the construction.
