It will require upgrades

This would require "fibre huts" in addition to VDSL2+ hardware installed at the DSLAM. Looking at the architecture as a ring, I'm not sure if it's bi-directional but if there is a ring disruption it could take the loop out. That never happens

The question would be if the telco updates to VDSL2+ (and remember AT&T uses a variant) why would they want to build out huts.

That seems questionable...

All of this will compete w/ wireless, macrocells, or ethernet over copper/fibre.

This is also predicated on the aging copper lines in existence today at the prem not needing replacement which costs lots.
