How do Android and security fixes occur with Plusnet?

I previously had a Vodafone contract and an LG G4 phone, and occasionally I would automatically get Android updates and/or security fixes - I can't recall whether they came from Vodafone over-the-air or LG. I switched to Plusnet SIM only, and then my phone promptly died. I've bought a second hand LG G5 from eBay, but to my annoyance I find it's an American model, AT&T branded. It's unlocked and should work fine with Plusnet (I'm about to try the SIM), but I'm just concerned about how any necessary updates might happen.

You'll need to wait for AT&T to push them out.

That's OK, but will this happen, as I'm not an AT&T customer?

Fix
the phone should still connect to their update servers to check if there are any available.

That's good to know. I need to know whether to keep the phone or return it, so it looks like I'll be able to keep it.
