Building to Building fiber link
Does anyone know if Fiber optic cable can be placed building to building at roof height. We have two buildings ~100 meters apart and I would like to link them via fiber. There is side road between the two buildings.
Digging up the road would be too costly I assume. So the other option is roof to roof.
Probably a long shot I know, but I'd just like to know if its possible and if it is, look into prices.

It is possible, yes, but I think if it is going across the road you'd need permissions from somewhere to do so.
Digging up a road would probably not be as expensive as you'd think, also you could do it without any digging as there are companies that can basically 'tunnel' a pipe under the road to put the cable through.

Yeah I assumed, I'd have to get permission from the local government or some such body. There is a telegraph pole that goes from each building and it would be perfect but I don't think it would fly with BT.
I didn't think about underground tunneling. Do you know of any such companies that do such a service? I'm even struggling for google search terms.

Have you tried Western Business Systems or PA Communications - both in your general area. We had them both out to look at a job and I'm sure at least one of them spoke of a 'mole' device. Our job didn't involve a public road though.

A company that uses directional drilling is what you need.

I've been quoted £10,000 for gigabit wireless but I'm not really a fan of wireless. Been quoted £7000 for gigabit laser but I'm sceptical about bad weather performance.
Saying that the wireless will certainly be cheaper than directional drilling, but I'd be interested in the costs never the less.
I think I'll give one or two of these companies a call and see what they say.
