Telus, Canada's second-largest mobile carrier, is a customer-friendly company, and one of its commitments is to keep Android users informed about when their devices will receive bug fixes, performance improvements, and significant new OS versions.
The company hosts a constantly-updated chart in its forums detailing when the next Galaxy, Moto, Nexus or Alcatel will receive an over-the-air software update, which has helped alleviate a number of emails, tweets and calls to customer service representatives, according to a company representative.
As of this writing, Telus has issued an Marshmallow update to the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+, while the Galaxy S6 update will arrive on April 18. These numbers tend to change, but Telus is usually quick about making those updates.
Telus notes that is one of the fastest providers to turn around updates — Android updates go through Quality Assurance testing for network performance and safety, such as 9-11 access — so any delays are usually the result of the manufacturer. Nevertheless, it's nice to see Telus committing to keeping its customers informed.
