Beverley set to become the fastest broadband town in the UK

  • 23 Jun 2017

The historic town of Beverley is forging a digital future as it becomes the fastest and most connected broadband town in the UK.

KCOM has launched the latest stage of its Lightstream rollout which means 97 per cent of all homes in Beverley will have access to ultrafast broadband. This is compared to 51.2 per cent of homes nationally.

The launch was welcomed by Graham Stuart, MP for Beverley and Holderness, who said: “It’s great news for both residents and businesses that Beverley is set to become the best connected town in the country for ultrafast broadband and I know this investment by KCOM will receive a warm welcome.”


Across the HU17 postcode Lightstream is now available to 19,238 properties, equalling 97.8 per cent of all homes. Beverley’s ultrafast status is another factor making the town a highly desirable location after it was named the seventh best place in the UK to live and work in the 2016 Hot Housing Index.
