They are the only developer I know of that is doing that.

I would say that they have intentionally developed a few months worth of content in advance and held it back intentionally. And I say good for them. They ALL should do that. Mechanics are released with content patches in TSW, which are where the bulk of the workload probably lies, but their story missions are probably the easiest to produce, no doubt due to them having efficient tools to work with and having a live team structured around releasing regular playable content.
cryptic also made a similar statement to update its game faster than anyone else when STO launched and for a time they did. There were updates and new missions coming thick and fast for the first 8-10 months.

whether funcome release content now at a fast pace is really beside the point, the key is can they keep that pace up in 6 months or a year or 2 years time?

i dont know their team size, their development tools, the funding, or quite frankly even anything about their game but dont get attached to any kind of breakneck speed because chances are it will slow down, much like every other mmo ever made, at which point im sure their forums will erupt wanting to know why the next new mmo on the block is making content so much faster than them.
