FIBER vs coax

I have three buildings about 1,000 feet from each
other that cannot be setup with 300 foot CAT5 runs.

Is below doable via COAX ?

If so, do I need to terminate into
a SWITCH in Building #3 & Building #2 before
feeding it to Building #1's firewall ?
1. Building #3
       ** ISP #2 comes in at this building
       ** SC end into PATCH PANEL's unused
       ** feeds into Building #2 PATCH PANEL

2. Building #2
       ** COAX into Building #2 PATCH PANEL
          from Building #3 PATCH PANEL
       ** COAX out of Building #2 PATCH PANEL
          to Building #1 PATCH PANEL

3. Building #1
       ** COAX out of Building #1 PATCH PANEL
          to Building #1 firewall as ISP #2

Coax would overly complex, fiber would be easier and 1000' is nothing,

Is all the coax provider?  You may be able to just create a MAN and the provider will configure point to point?
