It doesn't even matter what terrain you're looking at. In Sweden where density is extremely low they have FTTH without government investment.
In higher density countries they have FTTH. The US has cities, rural areas, suburbs.
In the end no one can compare to how many hundreds of billions of dollars have been sunk into broadband in this country by the federal government only to be pocketed by the incumbents or used to build their 40% profit margin wireless networks.
