In order to offer ethernet, you have to have cables capable of
carrying
it. There are a lot of buildings and neighbourhoods that have lots
of phone cable but no cat5 or fibre.
What's the problem with stretching such cables? Currently at least 3
providers have their separate ethernet networks in my building.

You are repeatedly missing a *very* important point - you are talking
*about where YOU are*. Ethernet cabling in existing facilities is
extremely rare.

There is a *HUGE* cost in just labor and materials to deploying such a
network. Obviously where you are _somehow_ those organizations are
defraying that cost [subsidies, tax breaks, grants, etc...].

Even if ethernet cabling were already available in every building in my
Gemeinde, the uplink connections would still be incredibly expensive.
xDSL would easily win.
