It is a bit of a political football and a proposal by the Communications Minister in the current government, perhaps the ex government after elections on Saturday.
Your english is not so bad actually and only heard instead of heared and probable not propable.

I am pretty sure there will be no internet censorship. This is just a pre-election game.

some options for internet in australia

Here is a list of internet options which seem interesting to me:

BigPond(http://broadbandguide.com.au/bigpond):
○ ADSL2 + 50 GB for 50$, it must have a two year contract
○ ADSL2 + 100GB for 88$, it must have a 2 year contract; includes gateway modem and line rental
○ ADSL2+ 200GB for 119$ and comes with two year contract, it says combine eligible telstra home line and bigpond broadband accounts with another eligible telstra product; and that telstra product seems to cost 50$ a moonth
○ Cable 200GB for a bundle price of 110$ per month

The last two seems to need a Telstra phone + net connection or a telstra phone connection worth 50$ a month
--------------------------------------------------------
Optus(http://broadbandguide.com.au/optus):
○ ADSL2+ 50GB for 50$ with monthly renewable contracts
○ Naked DSL 50GB(70GB off peak) - for 69$ a month with two years ontract with a mobile connection
○ Cable 50GB(70GB off peak) - for 50$ with a landline which is 40$ per month, with monthly contract
---------------------------------------------------------
IINET(http://broadbandguide.com.au/iinet):
○ Naked DSL 50GB with two years contract
○ ADSL2 100GB which comes with phone for two years contract with a bundle cost of 136$
(Business 3)
○ ADSL2 600GB with two years contract comes with phone connection for 635$ bundle cost
(Business 7)

--------------------------------------------------------
Southern Cross Telco(http://broadbandguide.com.au/southern-cross-telco):
○ ADSL2+ 60GB for a six month contract

--------------------------------------------------------
WestNet(http://broadbandguide.com.au/westnet):
○ ADSL2 + 50GB for two years contract with a phone connection which comes at 80$
○ ADSL2 + 60GB for two years contract with a phone connection which comes at 90$
○ ADSL2+ 70GB for two years contract with a phone connection which comes at 100$


Please go to the websites to find other options.

Now,
○ Does the phone lines usually cover unlimited landline and mobile calls everywhere in australia?
○ What if a person wants to change address in middle of a contract and wants the lines to be transferred, will it be done for cost of a line setup only?
○ All these broadband can be accessed by wireless if one gets a wireless router, correct?

Hey,

In all three cases - it depends on particular offer from particular ISP. You would need to confirm it with the one you choose.
