Go with a high bandwidth MPLS connection. Use QoS to prioritize traffic.

    Talk to a local computer networking company or work with a telecom provider. This may be a situation where you will want to purchase managed network services rather than operating the environment yourself. A good Cisco or Juniper reseller can help you out with the design and may also provide some implementation/operation support.

    Troy Tate's suggestion is your best bet. ISPs won't help you very much if you purchase an unmanaged MPLS solution. Talk to your ISP and make sure they manage it from end to end. They will most likely install their own routers at each site, and manage them remotely.
