[BroadBandChoice] Telecoms firms seek new revenue streams for broadband rollout

Three of Europe's biggest telecoms firms are keen to start charging online content providers for delivering material to consumers.

[...] the organisations want national regulators to allow them to charge the biggest online content providers - such as Google and YouTube - for delivering their services to home and business broadband customers.

One critic of this system, citizen advocacy group La Quadrature du Net, argued that allowing the telecoms industry to control content in this manner would be at the expense of "fundamental freedoms".
