You can read on updating your GT-19300 to Android 4.3 JB here: http://www.ibtimes.com/android-43-jelly-bean-update-samsung-galaxy-s3-gt-i9300-how-install-official-xxugmk7-firmware
I suggest XDA-developers forum if you want to know more about firmware and etc.

android 4.3 is 100% stable on the s3 and kitkat will offically be released soon. ive been beta testing it for 2 weeks and its running fine.. but for those who cant wait for the offical version .you can try a stock rom from "cyanogenmod" or "omni" both have great 4.4 android versions. "omni" was the best of the 2, that i tried.

After using Android 4.3, I experienced battery drain issue, battery drains faster. Standby is good. Rear side it overheats ( Contacted customer care but they said no problem with heating) sometimes you may feel stuck in between a song in Music player.
But phone became more quick and no lags.
Hope Samsung will provide a bug fix update for above issues.

While this doesnít rule out a massive UI change, it does make it less likely to happen.
So, at this point, itís possible that the new TouchWiz UI thatís rumored for the Galaxy S5 could skip the Galaxy S3 completely. The Galaxy S3 is nearing the end of its software support as itís around 18 months old. Google only recommends major Android updates for 18 months. Perhaps, Android 4.4 KitKat and its rumored changes will be the last thing that Galaxy S3 owners...

I reckon you mistook android 4.3 JellyBean as android 4.4 KitKat. Nobody receive any official android 4.4 KitKat update from Samsung yet.
And oh yes, it is not OTE but OTA !
Hi there. I bought two s3 one for my wife and one for her father and I am buying mine these days. One of the two phones has been upgraded to kitkat through OTE and I am waiting for the other one to be updated soon. So all you that say things like no update to kitkat for the s3 and no update through OTE am sorry but you are wrong. Great phone so far. Super fast camera and looks like a fast and steady software.
