Why is Western Europe dragging its heels on implementing Fiber based broadband?

I was perusing this .pdf
(slide 5) and was really really surprised to see how slow the incumbent telcos in much of Western Europe are at implementing Fibre. I recognize that the precedence of Satellite over Cable has take away some of the competitive angle we have in the US, but I would think the governments would be "encouraging" their respective telephone monopolies to get their act in gear.
