    Am going to be roaming around Europe with a concert tour and am wondering who would provide the best coverage (for a mobile data card)?

    In most cases, I'll have wifi/ethernet connections, but in the event that they fail, I'll need a REALLY reliable backup. My data connection will be extremely time sensitive, so it's gotta work well.

    I know that I can get these data plans through US service providers like AT&T/Verizon, etc. They are hideously expensive, but cost isn't too much of a concern. Reliability is more important.

    Anyone have experience with this? Can you recommend a service provider that would be better than others?

    Appreciate the help!

    I would go for Vodafone and get one of their bundles. You really only pay when you use it, and it's good in most European countries.

    I agree. It pains me to say it but vodafone has the best 3g and 3.5g coverage in europe altho O2 is catching up the signal for vodafone is normally better
