In theory you can put ~100,000 times the viable wireless spectrum down fibre. We can't do that yet but it is a route of future technological advance we can be confident in. Sure wireless can work as long as not too many people rely on it and it gets saturated.

My take on all this argument and the solution is -

In the towns/cities -
We are laying it down your street  we will connect you now for free. If not connect now  you can pay whatever private suppliers charge later.  The market will decide.

If you have wire we will replace it with fibre if it fails l at non cost and shift you to fibre.

In the rural areas nothing much changes.

If your town is not too far to have a fibre link Then this is a problem.
