My thought is that this digs into the idea that they 'just decided to' offer Fiber-to-the-Premises after they realized that they had built a fiber network. Or is this a non-issue (i.e. adding new strands is trivial / cheap once the infrastructure is there or maybe SOP is to just lay lots of strands, because the strands are cheap)?

Fiber optic cable is manufactured with anywhere between 1 and 288 strands in the bundle; I believe its most likely a non-issue.
