Major mobile phone carriers unblock Shooting Times site

The move means customers will no longer have to contact their phone providers to request permission to view the site.

BASC policy manager Conor O?Gorman told Shooting Times: ?It is encouraging that all shooting websites reported to Virgin Mobile and Vodafone have now been unblocked.?

?BASC is continuing to work with companies to remove unwarranted restrictions on shooting content wherever we come across them and I would urge mobile users and website owners to keep reports coming in.?

In May, BASC contacted major mobile carriers to highlight that under-18 filters had been unnecessarily applied to lawful shooting sites (News, 8 May).

The association is still waiting for a response to complaints about access on the EE network, but has received no complaints relating to the O2 network.
