Re: I am not the most up-to-date on upgrading UVerse
Fiber is expensive in large part due to the labor of splicing but I don't see why Telco could not run coax down property line on the pole from the RT (VRAD), it is easy , in my younger lineman days 2-3 guys could/did pull and hang a few blocks in a day of 50-100 pair copper ca. If they ran coax (lighter than copper ca.) you could put in a run and feed just the houses that had or could be sold VOIP, TV etc and leave the copper POTS alone for now.
As homes went VOIP they would not be allowed back on copper (after a period of trial time) like Verizon did with FTTH.
