Going on normal EE timescales it'll be somewhere between the 12th of never and hell freezing over. 

 

Sorry. They are very very slow at updates.  S6 is still on May 2016 patch. Nobody here including staff would be able to tell you. Your best option  if you want updates is to install the unbranded BTU firmware. There are discussions on here regarding the updates or lack of and methods for installing the firmware.

According to a tech website an Ee spokesman has confirmed that nougat is currently being tested before general release to ee customers, but no dates have been given.

Hi @Bellyman,

 

I've spoken to my colleague Richard who you have been speaking with via Facebook.

 

He's advised that he's still following this up for you and will be in touch as soon as he has more news for you.

 

Thanks

Thanks

 

Hopefully we'll get the statement on the changes being made and why EE choses this.

This forum and your customers deserve a lot better and a wide comunication.  As you can see every day another thread on updates..
