The following is from http://www.sun.com/service/solaris10/faq.html

"Q. What patches/fixes/updates do you get with a Service Plan?
 A. With Service Plans, you get separate patches/fixes as they become available. Without a Service Plan, you can only get all the patches/fixes when they are rolled into a complete OS release. Security fixes are available to all."
