BRUSSELS, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 2 (Reuters) - European Union lawmakers have dashed large telecoms companies' hopes for lighter regulation as part of efforts to encourage investment in superfast internet networks. The European Parliament's Industry committee voted on Monday to limit the regulatory sweeteners given to operators investing in new networks together and gave regulators greater powers to force companies to give rivals access to their networks. The costs of running optic fibre into households are high and telecoms operators such as Orange (LSE: 0OQV.L - news) , Deutsche Telekom and Telecom Italia (Amsterdam: TI6.AS - news) have long complained that the current rules forcing them to open up their networks to competitors at regulated prices do not allow them a decent return on investment.
