By Foo Yun Chee BRUSSELS (Reuters) – European lawmakers will vote on proposals this week that could severely curtail the ability of telecoms operators to mine a potentially lucrative source of revenue – charging content providers more to deliver their services at faster speeds. The EU recommendations would enshrine net neutrality, which means Internet service providers must treat all traffic equally regardless of the source or content, in European Union law applicable across 28 countries. They would also set restrictions on the kind of online services for which Internet providers can charge extra. The European Parliament will vote on the recommendations at noon on Thursday.
