Rogers has bad reception in PEI, unfortunately. Bell is much better.
I prefer Rogers due to them being quicker with introducing new BlackBerries, but I have to admit I would worry about PEI. There are only something like 6 or 8 Rogers celltowers (I think) compared to Bell's 50 celltowers. I saw an exact number at HoFo. It was definitely less than 10 celltowers for the ENTIRE ISLAND :(
It may have perfect reception in your particular location in PEI, but be prepared with a backup plan; Rogers reception is spotty outside of Charlottetown.
Rogers has excellent reception in Ontario, so no problem where I am, Ontario is a big WiFi hotspot to me!!
