If wireless is too expensive or not possible due to the technology/laws,
you might think about renting dark fiber from a non-RBOC type
company.  Also there is companies like Cogent who will sell you a 100Mb
connection for $1000/month.  

In a large metropolitan area like Chicago, you should be able to pay much
less than the monthly cost of a T3.
