No worries.

The same day the withdrawal was announced, the then Communications Minister stated that as a result of notices to Australian ISPs, over 90% of Australians using Internet Services were going to have a web filter. Australian Federal Police would then pursue smaller ISPs and work with them to meet their "obligation under Australian law".
iiNet and Internode quietly confirmed that the request to censor content from Australian Federal Police went from voluntary to mandatory under s313 in an existing law. iiNet had sought legal advice and accepted the s313 mandatory notice but would not reveal the legal advice publicly.Ē

ďIn April 2019, the Senate passed a bill in response to the Christchurch mosque shooting which required websites that provide a hosting service to "ensure the expeditious removal" of audio or visual material documenting "abhorrent violent conduct" (including terrorist acts, murder, attempted murder, torture, rape or kidnapping), produced by a perpetrator or accomplice, within a reasonable time frame. Hosts must also report such content to authorities. Those who do not remove the materials may face fines and jail time.Ē

ROTFLMO. WIkipedia is not a "legal cite".


"If enacted, the legislation would have required Internet service providers to censor"
But it wasn't enacted.


A "web filter" and limitations on locally hosted content are a far cry from "compulsory monitoring and censoring of "the internet" in Australia" .


Hint; There's a lot more to "the Internet" that the World Wide Web.

If you do the SIM card and router, make sure they both support 5G.
I donít know of any laptop with a SIM card slot... Thatís why I switched to an iPad with a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse...


My HP laptop has a SIM slot. Love it. I pay $10/month as an add on to my Verizon unlimited data account

Seconded!
Speaking as an Aussie IT professional, a law abiding citizen in Australia will most likely not even notice the relative handful of websites that are blocked by law. With the obvious exception of people who use "free" public wifi for banking, etc, the only people in Australia likely to truly require a VPN are those who make use of sites providing the same kind of services as the one that uses a pirate ship in its' logo. Said site is still going strong today, as it happens. Don't ask how I know..

Re: Internet access with SIM card when with no WIFI

Cruising the med, I personally think Wi-Fi is now quite useless outside your home marina or a few regular places where youíve picked up the passwords over time ( and they havenít changed them ). Iíve seen open Wi-Fi on a long time.

3G/4G is the way to go. I have a Ä25 a month unlimited data , unlimited calls and texts Red roaming sim , good all over the EU and maybe the U.K. next year ( but probably not ) . I can tether as much as I like.

Canít see much future in ship board long range Wi-Fi
