    Same here in Brazil. My wife's G5+ received the update this week.
    Some G5+ users received the update last week in India, but it seems most are receiving it today.
    My son's Mi A1 received the Dec update about 10 days ago.

    India probably has a much bigger presence of Motorola phones than USA...therefore Lenovo updates them quicker

    I currently have a cricket prepaid sim in my device (att towers)
    I'm seriously considering switching from my S5 to G5+. I'm with Total Wireless using Verizon network. Where can I get security patch updates and future OS upgrade if I use this on prepaid carriers like Total Wireless? I used to manually apply new updated firmwares from SamMobile for my Galaxy S5. But, I cannot find it from Motorolla or Lenovo. Thanks!

    Motorola does not support manual updates at all, you must take them via OTA. Moto offers OTA updates regardless of carrier (although some carriers do take longer than others to get the updates).

    In some cases OTA files leak out or are captured and you can side load them, but this is not consistent or reliable.

    You will get them regardless of what network you are on once they push them out.

    Not entirely true. Verizon models have the option to update via computer/cable.

    But yes, there is no such official option for the unlocked and other carrier models.

    Not entirely true. Updates can and have been held back depending on what SIM is in the phone.

    See various Moto X Pure Edition updates.

    Moto G5 Plus did not receive the Dec security patch, it got the Nov security patch in some countries in Dec.
    The G5S Plus received the Dec security patch.

    Still on the August 1 patch in the UK, too (G5+). I get it that some markets are more important to Lenovo than others, but it's taking a really long time for some countries to catch up with Brazil and India.

    Why did I get another November 2017 update today. I noticed my son updated it before I could see why it was being repeated will to the same November 2017 from previous update?
