GPRS/EDGE data service in eastern Caribbean

After we've been way too long on land, and Dulcinea way too long on the hard in Trinidad, we are finally getting ready to head out there again. We used to have a GPRS/EDGE service offered by Cingular that worked OK in much of the southern eastern Caribbean, but then they raised the rates to a point that mere mortals could no longer afford it. I notice that Digicel and BMobile have a GPRS service now. Has anyone used them, and if so, which one might be better? We have Winlink email and have been able to pick up WiFi at some anchorages, but this evil thing called work kept me off the boat for the past year and a half, and if I can get decent email service that I can use somewhat reliably for business stuff, then I can slay the evil work monster and get back where I am supposed to be. Any thoughts? Many thanks....JB s/v Dulcinea
