With laser and meson comms, you don't need to worry about intercepting your signals or using them to locate you, which is why the Navy use them almost exclusively. (The signals are probably encrypted anyway, just in case).

I see there being a constant stream of data being passed between ships within a fleet, 99% of which is computers talking to each other. There will also be a lot of data traffic between civilian ships and the starport - as soon as ships enter a system they'll automatically plug themselves into the local internet and exchange email, update navigational databases, etc.
