Xperia Z1 Lollipop 5.0 Update?

So the 5.0 Lollipop update for Xperia Z1, Z1 Compact and Z1 Ultra started to roll out yesterday.  Can you confirm when I will be able to access this update (still on Kitkat 4.4)?

 

What is the ETA for this update, when can we expect it to drop (I have a Z1 Compact)?

I've tried updating my Z3 but it seems Virgin is blocking the update.

I had a response from Virgin Media on Twitter stating that they will start work on the update once they receive it from Sony.  I'm guessing they don't have it yet...

Re: Xperia Z1 Lollipop 5.0 Update?

They are full of crap, they tried to blame Sony when I spoke to them about this over a fortnight ago but I know for a fact they have had this software since the first of April, then when I called them on this he admitted as much but said they had to test it to make sure it's compatible, they've had nearly three weeks and all the other's have it on their Sony Xperias, bad form Virgin, I don't think I'll be renewing my contract next year, I'll be gonna elsewhere, your support for your phones is nothing short of pathetic and you've only got yourself to blame for lying and making excuses!

Yeah, c'mon Virgin Media! Hurry up and get this update pushed out. How long does it take to 'test' your bloat ware on a new version of Android?

I'm staying with KitKat 4.4.4 as I know from experience what these updates can do.
