I disagree, my old Note 2 on Three was landed with a pile of random lock-up bugs which I could ultimately only fix by replacing the Three image with a pure Samsung one I found online.

The operators still can and control the image update process and they certainly don't push updates monthly. For phones more than a couple of years old it's more likely never.
