Pornography filters on mobile phones are "censoring" normal web content, according to the Open Rights Group.
Its report found that 60 websites were incorrectly blocked by mobile filters designed to prevent children viewing adult content.
The affected sites included political commentaries, personal blogs and community websites.
The government is considering whether to apply similar blocks to fixed-line broadband services.
