I am looking at Tooway Satellite Broadband (20mbps). It beams down to their ground station in Italy. Is this safe to use with Tor?
Tor is designed to prevent the Internet access provider — or an eavesdropper monitoring the access — from learning which sites are accessed. So using Tor can help defeating surveillance on a satellite connection. The latency of using Tor is likely to be important due the the high latency of satellite links.
