A partnership involving Fife Council, Destination Digital, Scotland’s Towns Partnership and ABCD (Association of Businesses in Cupar and District) is set to bring Cupar into the digital age.
Under the plans, Cupar’s town centre will have free public access WiFi, a Cupar website will be created and residents will be given support in skills, including the use of social media.
Transport, infrastructure and connectivity secretary Michael Matheson, who launched the scheme, said that it is part of the Scottish Government’s vision for improved connectivity across the country.
He said: “The pilot enables Cupar to showcase its digital capabilities, ultimately demonstrating the need for smart towns as well as smart cities,”

North East Fife SNP MP Stephen Gethins said: “It was good to hear more about the Digital Improvement District project, which aims to improve the town centre enabling businesses, organisations and the community to work more closely together, enhance connectivity including free public realm WiFi in the town centre, and support the local economy via a range of initiatives including the new #CuparNow social media platforms and information sharing,”
