depending on the answers you may be able to consider:
a. leased lines between offices via:
frame relay via local or long distances carrier
b. wireless data links for line-of-site apps
c. bandwidth on demand services like ISDN BRI/PRI or POTS (regular) lines
d. VPN solutions via dedicated Internet links at both offices.
e. or possibly satellite link where latency is not a concern.
otherwise you basic idea is sound just need to cost justify. we've done this
before for clients who needed to link offices and provide Internet
