Go fer RCN Fiber. I had good experience working with them shortly after
they took over Sidera 5-6 yrs ago. It's "custom" fiber, but pretty good
rates. I remember looking at 50 over 15 at around $1500/mo. I can't
imagine prices going up since then. 

Maybe other wireless providers are available to you? Rainbow pricing
maybe better? 

Good luck!
