Wireless vs. Fiber

My company is planning an internet connection with Verizon who has fiber available at the perimeter of our property.  We need to deliver it to our building which could be done in either of two methods. (1) Trench around 3000' of conduit and run fiber to the building or (2) Install wireless equipment from the perimeter to the building to cover the span.  I do not know the specific wireless equipment they would use but they said it could transmit over 300mbs.  Which is better?

You might consider doing both to have an alternate path in case someone does cut the fiber.  If you did that, you would want to monitor it to make sure it is still working when you need it.
I agree with by: epichero22, Fiber is always a great solution is cost is not an issue. The speed is great and if installed properly, it should be very dependable.

Hope this helps!
