I know FTTH footprints where peak evening average per customer is 3-5 
megabit/s. I know others who claim their customers only average equivalent 
5-10% of that.

It all depends on what services you offer. Considering my household has 
250/100 for 40 USD a month I'd say your above solution wouldn't even be 
enough to deliver an acceptable service to even 10 households.
