Will T-mobile Nexus 4 get immediate updates?

Just want to know if the T-mobile Nexus 4 will get immediate firmware updates like the off contract versions.

I get great employee discounts from work, so i will actually be saving a hundred bucks getting the subsidized version. Has anyone read any info on this. Is the 16gb Nexus offerd by t-mobile the exact same Nexus as the one sold in the Google Play store?
