Xperia XZ and Android 7.1.1 in the UK

Hi - I've noticed via XperiFirm (yes, and checking with PC Companion) that in the UK, Vodafone, Virgin and EE have already upgraded XZ phones to android 7.1.1. Is there a specific reason O2 are lagging behind? Three haven't done it yet, but I don't even think they've even pushed out the security update which the rest of us got about a month ago.

Should be this week if O2 sent it back to Sony for deployment.

We apologise for the delay in bringing this software update to the Xperia XZ but we have encountered issues with it on our network that we believe are specific to us, due to the various technologies we use to create a truly smart network. We’re working closely with Sony to resolve this as quickly as possible, but fixing it is complex so it may take a few more weeks. As and when we’ve got another update, we’ll keep you posted.

Does this mean that any unbranded phones won't work on o2?

@Chris_K
I've had 7.1.1 on o2 for a while now, is this to do with implementation of VoLTE or something else?
