Just watch for when updates should happen and see if it does. If you don't get them then you have to consider your options (stay on an old build, borrow a friends SIM card for a few minutes who is on the carrier where it does gets updates, or do something like a custom ROM).
Those are some really good suggestions. My previous phone HTC amaze never got an update so I couldn't tell if carriers would affect it.
I wonder if windows os updates circumvent carrier restrictions, if so that would be why HTC 8X continued to get updates when your One did not.
Another thing is, the company I switched to is owned by my old company so I don't know if that would affect things
