The question -- ‘Is this sweet, sweet Google Fiber in the wild?’ – was posed on Twitter this morning by Nick Owen, CEO of WiKID Systems, an Atlanta-based purveyor of two-factor authentication products.

Owen doesn’t know if that is duct-tape-tipped Google Fiber cozying up to a traffic light post located a few miles from his home. But Atlanta is definitely one of the cities where Google is building out a fiber optic network, so he snapped the photo.

Here’s a fuller look at the picture for anyone who might know one way or the other.

Google Fiber? Or not?

 Even without confirmation, the mere possibility has generated a bit of fiber-envy in Owen’s Twitter stream.

“If it is (Google Fiber)” tweets one follower, “I hate you.”
