For example, if you look at postal code J8G 2T2 for the 4G HSPA+ Extend network on http://www.rogers.com/business/on/en...gers/coverage/, it looks basically like the EXT network is just overlaid over a bunch of holes in the Rogers network. It seems like it would be difficult to determine the borders of where the Rogers native footprint ends in areas like this where coverage exists but is just patchy.
    The maps (besides being way overstated) definitely does not tell the whole story. The way Rogers has it set up currently is whenever you lose Rogers signal, it will switch to Bell/Telus towers if available. However, if there is even a very weak 2G signal available, you will stay on Rogers network.

    There are a couple small areas in my city where the Rogers map says you have coverage, but there was nothing until extended was implemented.

    Not entirely accurate. Even in areas where there is absolutely no Rogers signal (but within Rogers' coverage), Rogers phones will not switch to EXT, which I'm assuming is because those areas are "covered" according to Rogers - i.e. there should be native coverage. For example, in Vaughan (30min North of Toronto), there are a few spots with absolutely no Rogers signal (not even EDGE), but very strong Bellus signal, and Rogers phones won't switch...can't even force them to EXT...when you try, they still say "No Service". My basement is one example of such locations
