It’s a Beautiful Day in the Fiberhood

by Tricia Whitlock

 Avalon, a mixed-use development in Alpharetta, has partnered with Hotwire Communications to build Georgia’s first “fiberhood,” an ultra high speed fiber-to-the-premises broadband network.

The Fiberhood:

  • Gigabit speeds are 100 times faster then the average US connection
  • Hotwire Communications has built the infrastructure for Avalon’s fiber and will provide the service with their product called Fision.
  • All connections are end-to-end fiber (no copper)
  • Individuals can get a full gig worth of internet in their home
  • Why did Avalon’s developer do this? Internet/bandwidth use is growing by 30% annually in the US and they chose fiber because it’s “scaleable to grow with demand” and is”future proof”


  • $600 million, 2.4 million-square-foot “resort-inspired” development 45 minutes north of Atlanta
  • “Oozes technology” with Fiberhood offering, IP based NDVR security cameras & RFID technology for events and concierge service
  • 108,000 square feet of loft office space
  • Gwinnett Technical College recently broke ground on a new campus right across the street from the development

Why Alpharetta?

Stay Tuned. Hypepotamus will be featuring more of the Alpharetta Tech scene in the coming months.
