E-minister Douglas Alexander has commissioned a £95,000 study to list the UK's broadband content development projects.
The study aims to list planned projects, look at where government aid could be channelled and see how micro-payments could be used to boost revenue-generating potential. It will also look at how such projects are marketed.
Conducted in partnership with the Digital Content Forum, it will be carried out by KPE Europe and OC & C Strategy Consultants.
Alexander said in a statement: "Exciting new content such as online games, video on demand and software applications will give consumers and businesses a real incentive to upgrade to broadband.
"Making that happen requires action and support in carefully targeted areas. This project will pull together information on existing content development projects across the country and establish where the need for further action lies.
"This work is the latest in a wide number of measures set out in the broadband strategy published earlier this month mapping out the way forward for broadband Britain."
