KC Claim Residents of Beverley Now Receive the Fastest Speeds in the UK

KC, the incumbent internet and phone provider for Hull and East Riding (Yorkshire, UK), has claimed that the ongoing roll-out of their new Lightstream fibre optic broadband service (FTTH / FTTC), which kicked off last month, has managed to connect over 500 customers in the market town of Beverley. As a result the town is now said to have “the fastest speeds in the country“.

Apparently data from Ookla’s broadband speed test site, Netindex.com, shows Beverley at the top of the UK internet speed league table with an average download rate of over 40Mbps (Megabits per second), which is well above Ofcom’s 7.6Mbps national UK average (details) and ahead of second place Jarrow on 30Mbps+.

Nick Thompson, KC’s Director of Consumer Services, said:

The response to KC Lightstream so far has been fantastic. These days we rely on broadband for entertainment, information and communication, and our KC Lightstream customers are finding that download speeds of 100Mbps are transforming their broadband experience. Over time we want our roll-out of lightning fast fibre optic broadband to give all of our customers the best-connected homes and businesses in the UK. Seeing Beverley at the top of the Net Index speed table means we’re off to a great start.”

The service aims to reach 15,000 local homes and businesses before the end of 2012. Installations are already taking place in parts of east and west Hull, as well as to the north of Hull, in Beverley and across several other East Yorkshire villages (more details). Standalone broadband packages start from £25 per month (bundles from £35) and offer download speeds of between 45Mbps and 100Mbps.
