I will be visiting Finland for 1 month near the end of this month, for a business trip. I would like to know how easy it is to get a SIM card with a data plan right after I land at the Helsinki Airport; and perhaps some recommendations on which providers have the best coverage. Price is not really a concern, I just need to ensure that the data access is very stable. I would be happy to hear your thoughts.

I went through a few mobile provider websites by googling it, but unfortunately I cannot read Finnish.

    There are a lot of questions about getting SIM cards in Europe. Assuming you have a unlocked GSM phone. You just walk into a phone shop or convince store, hand them somewhere between 8 and 10 euros for a SIM and credit basically anywhere in Europe and that's it. You don't need a contract or anything complicated. If you're spending most of your time in urban areas coverage doesn't really matter.

There are three major networks in Finland Elisa, DNA and Telia. All of them have a really good coverage in the whole country and unless you're going to a specific place in the countryside I wouldn't worry too much about the coverage. Coverage maps for all the operators are here Elisa, DNA and Sonera. The best and probably only place at the airport to buy a SIM-card is R-kioski for which you can see details here https://www.r-kioski.fi/tuotteet/prepaid-liittymat. (Should be google translatable)
