The Fiber transmission is in fact encrypted. It is a part of the GPON specification to use encryption as a precaution to prevent others from hacking ONTs to capture traffic on their PON. The same applies to Cable Internet, where BPI+ is used to encrypt traffic over a node so that a modem can only see what it is supposed to see, and not what is being broadcast to other modems.
