I question the use of the word "all", it may not even be remotely
commercially feasible to operate FttN connecting remote communities
and those outside of the 98% percent of the population densities. I
surely wouldn't want to pay an additional *30% help pay to service the
2% population that live way outside.

*30% was just a pure guess!
