I don't think I would bother with fiber.  However, I would want to run
multiple Cat-5 runs to each house and maybe a few strands of RG-6.  As far
as installation, I would want to run Cat-5 to multiple locations in each
home and use it for telephone service as well.  Lots of flexibility is
very important.
