Be Broadband is still unable to confirm whether fibre broadband services will become available in 2013.
The provider - the sister firm of O2 - is yet to launch fibre-based broadband deals, meaning consumers are unable to access the ultra-fast speeds offered by some of its rivals.
Earlier this year, Be admitted it was "not making very good progress on fibre", a position that does not appear to have changed heading towards the final quarter of 2012.
Chris Stenning, Managing Director at the firm, said he was still unable to give consumers the definitive answer they are looking for about fibre.
"As you saw from our announcement earlier this year, fibre was not something we were going to invest in this year due to other priorities across the group," he stated.
"We are currently looking at the investment wishlist across the whole of O2 UK for 2013 and while this is on the list of things I would like us to be able to do, I can't yet confirm either way."
Mr Stenning said there was little he could add on the matter at present, however he did say that a Be fibre service "would be fantastic".
