If you don't lean from mistakes (see dotbom era) you at doomed to repeat them again. Lots of companies over built with no real need and many went belly up. Phone companies regardless of size do not have endless supplies of money
I do not, have not, and will not work for AT&T/Comcast/Verizon/Charter or similar sized company.
If Google really is deploying this all on GPON (rather than 10GPON), they're deploying exactly the same type of network as Verizon is using for FiOS. They only difference would be that Google is setting the max rate per customer higher (and potentially using a lower split ratio per node).
It's hard to argue that that's overbuilding, since there is no real technical difference between them promising 100 Mbps or 1000 Mbps per customer; it's the same physical deployment either way.
