The Royal Mail says it hit the national target for delivering first class post on time across most of Wales between April and June.
Six out of eight postcode areas achieved the national target of 93% or above, it said.
People living in Llandrindod Wells, Brecon, Builth Wells and Knighton saw the best service in Wales with 96.7% of first class mail arriving the next day.
This was the second highest result in the UK.
Tony Fox, Royal Mail operations director, said: "We are extremely pleased that we are delivering a high quality service for our customers in Wales and the rest of the UK.
"It's down to our local postmen and women, out on their routes six days a week, who are determined to deliver the best possible service to our customers."
Across the UK, 92.9% of first class stamped, franked and single piece pre-paid mail was delivered on time, just 0.1% below the national target of 93%.
Royal Mail said it exceeded its national second cass mail and standard retail parcels targets between April to June, with the overwhelming majority of all mail delivered on or ahead of target.
The company delivered 98.6% of second class mail three working days after posting, beating the 98.5% target, according to independent research.
