    No idea on cost. But you can go up to 160km so 100m should be fine... The VDSL idea is a good one nicegear should have the bits you need and will likely be cheaper than fibre.

    6 core OM3 direct burial cable would be your best option if you could budget for it. You bury it directly and dont need a alkathene pipe or such. You would certainly need a fibre technician to install/terminate SC connectors at each end. You only need 2 cores for one connection and the rest of the cores would be spare. OM3 cable can do 100Mbps over 2Km with standard media converters or 1Gbps over 550m.
    And at each end you would need a media converter such as this one for 100Mbps.

    Found that - perhaps a tad on the dear side, but would be very simple!
