Australian Nexus 6P owners on the Telstra network will be pleased to know that the issues with 4G switching are close to being at an end, with reports starting to filter in that the long-awaited Over-The-Air (OTA) update to fix the 4G switching issue is starting to roll out.
The update, which weighs in at a shade over 71MB specifically lists fixing 4G Network Connectivity. The update brings the build up to MMB29N with the Android version remaining at 6.0, though Baseband has been updated to .2.6.1.c4-00008-M8994FAAAANAZM-1.

Initial accounts are that the fix is quite successful at resolving issues that were being experienced by Telstra Nexus 6P customers. The rollout will most likely be slow at first and build momentum as more devices are successfully updated with no issues.
At this stage the Nexus Factory Images page hasn’t been updated with a new build as yet, with the current factory image listing for 6.0.0 (MDB08M) still the one which incorporates the November security patches. The fix for 4G issues on Telstra should be incorporated into the next factory image that Google adds.
