Like honestly you should be updating the security of the Samsung line of phones especially when you have already received the patch. This goes for the Note 5, Galaxy S6, and Edge. Google releases these each month. Samsung has stated they want to push out these monthly system updates. Always the carriers have to be involved? In the US they are getting security system updates for the Galaxy line. Do some good for your customers and keep their system up to date with security like Apple does for iPhone. You have the system update from Samsung so start updating your customers system.

Rogers releases all security updates from OEMs once verification has been completed. Once a GMR (General Maintenance Release) or EMR (Emergency Maintenance Release) is ready, you're device with prompt with the OTA download option.
If you're not receiving any prompt and the update is available, its always best to directly connect your device to your computer and manually update.
The problem is it seems Canadian carriers are taking the normal approval process for security updates, while US carriers are expediting the process with their OEMs.
Why is Rogers (and your competitors) sitting on their hands for these critical updates to the end user? Maybe some learnings from your US partners is due here.
This doesn't affect me as I'm using a 6s Plus and a Nexus 6p both purchased directly from Apple and Google, so no skin off my back, but it's frustrating for the rest of the users to have to wait like this.
