Yeah, totally can't be done. It especially can't be done profitably.

Google can afford to start almost any project they want,  and they are
in a unique position to negotiate peering and access to a ton of
bandwidth, with their Youtube, Google Search et al. As to whether  it
will be profitable, well, obviously, that is their claim. It's yet to
be demonstrated.

I gotta reject the idea that broadband providers should be required to
follow in Google's footsteps though.

For now, Google fiber is another risky experiment,  that could have a
great payout if successful, or could be shuttered within a year or so,
 or fees/rate incs tacked on,  when they figure out just what a mess
they have gotten into.
