I'm looking to buy a SIM card with a data plan. What company has coverage in the Pyrenees?

Any recommendation for a plan with 3G coverage there?

Andorra? France? Spain? –  MastaBaba Oct 3 '12 at 18:17

He originally tagged it as Spain, so can probably assume that for now... –  Mark Mayo Oct 3 '12 at 21:50

Spanish Pyrenees indeed. –  Uri Oct 4 '12 at 10:33

I used Vodafone (they had 3G) and it worked fine in Spain. Once I made it to Andorra, I was roaming and was told what the charges would be. I assume it would be the same had I continued on to France. The rate was 10 EUR for unlimited Internet which cost something like 3.15 EUR per week. They credited the full 10EUR to your account. Once I hit 20MB/day, it throttled me, but I could still access the Internet. I also had phone as well as texting.

Just stop at a Vodafone place anywhere in Spain. I was in Spain for almost two weeks and I had Internet the whole time without any issues.

There is also Movistar, but I don't know if they had 3G. They had 20 EUR for 500MB of data.

Indeed, information about roaming charges is mandatory under EU law and the price is capped so it should be very similar in France and many other countries. –  Relaxed Oct 23 '13 at 9:52
