East Yorkshire town now boasts average broadband speeds of over 40Mb.
The East Yorkshire town of Beverley has the fastest broadband speeds in the UK, according to broadband provider KC.
A study, using data from broadband speed test site Netindex.com, found that the average download speeds for users in Beverley is now 40.66Mb.
Beverley beat Jarrow on Tyneside, which boasts average speeds of 30.54Mb, into second place. It's also considerably ahead of the UK average, which telecoms regulator Ofcom has identified as 7.6Mb.
KC recently started deployment of its Lightstream fibre optic broadband network, which allows for download speeds of up to 100Mb. More than 500 houses and businesses in Beverley are using the service.
The company has said it intends to extend the superfast network to 15,000 homes and businesses by the end of the year.
Nick Thompson, the director of consumer services for KC, said: "Over time, we want our roll-out of lightning-fast fibre optic broadband to give all 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."
Last week, the Department of Culture published a map showing the availability of superfast broadband - defined as 25Mb-plus by Ofcom - in the UK's towns and cities.
Belfast is currently the the country's leading superfast broadband city when it comes to availability, with 97% of its population able to access such services.
