Seven years ago I moved to a new house with FTTH. Actually it was one of the criteria I had for a new place. It needs to have fiber-connection. I had cable-TV -Internet for 11 years before that and I was fed up with all the problems a shared medium has.
Today, we're here:
Last month my Telco, Elisa Finland, made 1 Gig connection available in this region and me being me, there is no real option for not getting it. I had no issues with previous one, connection wasn't slow or buggy, but faster IS better. Price is actually 8€ cheaper than my previous 250 Mbit connection. To make this absolutely clear: I'm paying 42€ / month for above connection.
To verify result, same with Python-based testing speedtest-cli --server 22669:

I don't think I can post screenshots here but here's my results:
And I'm almost paying the same as you for your new link here in Austria haha.
Good idea on having FTTH as a requirements for moving in. I'm in the same plan, so I might consider this as a requirements too. Not sure if FTTH is very common here though. **insert thinking emoji here**
