You can get more throughput out of fiber over copper with WDM where different wavelengths of light can go through a single piece of fiber without interference. Sure, a WDM upgrade would be expensive but not as expensive as laying more copper. The upgrades would be done at strategic places where they would be easy as opposed to cable where the infrastructure is inherently shared in the last mile. Fiber brings the congestion points to locations that are easily upgraded if more speed is required.
