Hi,

Not too sure whether this is the best place to post it but I saw that the Android update schedule for HTC has been leaked out:

Hopefully as long as carriers won't get in the way then it appears that 6.0 and 6.0.1 appear to be on their way soon which will be great.

I am sure you have had it explained to you before, Carriers have very little to do with this longest it takes is one week for approval then it's pushed back to the handset manufacturer to push out and this is where it can take many weeks sometimes month or two

Even waiting for updates to test can take quite a while between markets

Probably less of an issue here than it is in the US.
