When can we expect the roll out to hit the UK?
If my previous experience with updates on an unbranded UK Xperia SP gives a clue, then it will be months before Lollipop is deployed to UK devices.

@Andy_Dandy, you are completely wrong!!! If you purchased a mobile phone in UK on contract, you will get the update straight away when is available in our region... PS From 2012 nearly 2013 UK (especially network three) are not allowed to block your phone which means your phone is unblocked, you will be able to use any sim and all the devices should be able to update to Android L as soon as it released for all central Europe ( France , UK, Germany) etc etc
Well I can tell from FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE that the Android 4.3 update reached UK unbranded xperia SP phones MONTHS after the deployment started. During those months several people (including me) asked Sony why and we always got the canned response on staggered rollout etc. You can check the Xperia SP forum yourself.
It was not due to any direct operator interfence because, as I said, it was with unbranded devices. My xperia SP was a phone bought at full price without a contract.
My speculation is that Sony had signed some sort of illegal exclusivity deal with one of the UK operators to ensure that 4G/LTE would be enabled only on devices running on that network for a certain period of time and the 4.3 update opened that feature to all devices by default.
(PS: the part of your post on unlocked phones is irrelevant because of course my phone was never locked to any network, however Sony didn't make the update available for the UK unbranded phones.)

Blame EE for that
No I blame Sony because I had bought a Sony phone. I just hope this time I don't go through the same pain with the Z3 Compact because there is not going to be a third time.
