Connecting one place to another for internet.

Good Day,

I am thinking of sharing internet between two different offices. Kindly advise the best device to use, because we got fiber into the first office and don't want to pay multiple internet fees for the other office.

Based on google maps the distance is roughly: 250Meters, these buildings are the tallest around.

I need a 95% always working system , as internet is very key to e-commerce operation.

Do I run another fiber or simply use a bridge?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you have the budget to run a fiber (pull extra ones while you're at it ... rats, dumb maintenance, aging ...) then that is the best solution as it will maximize bandwidth and minimize the possibility of interception at the hardware level.

Then put good encryptors on each end of the fiber.  From the image you've shown it appears you're in Nigeria, which is a very hostile environment full of black hats.

The not-attractive solution would be line-of-sight WiFi or microwave.  I can't wholeheartedly recommend either of these as those spectra are already too crowded and, again, you are in a very hostile environment.

I think it will be cheaper to have two internet lines. Private Fiber is the only practical option to get constant up time.

Wifi bridge link is cheaper and easier. Links can be encrypted over-the-air with military-grade encryption. Job done! I've installed hundreds in all kinds of RF environments with great results.

Please recommend the appropriate wifi bridge that'll give at least: 95% uptime

It's never an absolute guarantee but look at Ubiquiti bridges (cheap but extremely good), or InfiNet.

FIber still best.
