Certainly the devil is in the details, in New Zealand the access layer (GPON plus local transport) is largely regulated. Then Retail service providers buy the access component wholesale and add layer3, national backhaul etc. Retail for unlimited 1G/500M internet is about $75USD/month, for 100/50 you are looking at about 50USD/month. Key to this was the breakup of the incumbent into an access plus retail provider. This was done by allowing power (lines) companies in a few regions to win the access component contract.

The FTTH rollout in Sweden has resulted in monopoly and the prices are high. Anything will work if you do not need to compete and you are getting financed by someone with money to spend.
