I don't use satellite internet but have read people debating either way. I suppose nothing on the internet is fool-proof. So long as you are going with a reputable provider, with a sound governance and security management in place, you would just take the usual measures to protect your internet traffic, which should include the use of VPN, firewall, etc.

No cable? Are you moving to Mayberry?
Why don't you check with some of the local folks to see how a satellite dish works for them in the community?
