Teenagers Alan and Marko Fleming have jumped on the broadband (band)wagon - literally - in a bid to bring ADSL to their hometown of Cupar in Fife.

They've decorated their three-wheeled 50cc Piaggio Ape (pronounced "apee") with details of how people can register their interest in ADSL and are driving the vehicle round the town to drum up support for broadband.

So far, Cupar has notched up more than 250 pre-registrations - and is within sight of the magic 300 that will trigger BT to invest in converting their local exchange to broadband.
