This handset is still one of the best available on US Cellular and this last firmware update brings it next to its siblings on Sprint or variants based in Europe and South Korea that already got Marshmallow.
Codrut Nistor,

LG G4 is still a relevant flagship that already received Android 6.0 Marshmallow in parts of Europe and in South Korea. In the US, Sprint already updated this flagship to the latest major iteration of Google's mobile operating system, and now US Cellular does the same.

After the update, the LG G4 model US-991 handset will run version US99120b of the Android software and its users will enjoy all the new features and improvements that Marshmallow brings. The list is pretty long, including Google Now on Tap, Doze Mode, improved app permissions, Android Pay, improved cut and paste, voice search from the lock screen, Smart Lock for Passwords, app power saving exceptions, as well as an Easter egg game (a Flappy Bird clone).

The LG G4 support page on US Cellular's website reveals that the OTA update rollout has begun already but, as usual, those in a hurry can check manually via Settings>About phone>Software updates.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
