Prepaid mobile/internet for tourist
I have been researching different prepaid mobile options for our family holiday in Greece this summer. I am thoroughly confused and I would appreciate some advice.

We will be in Athens Mykonos Santorini and Kos for about 6 weeks all up.

We have 4 mobile phones and 2 laptops.

The phones are iPhone 4 and 5

I would like to buy 4 prepaid services with:

At least 1Gb of data each

The ability to enable hot spot (tethering) with the iPhones so we can connect the laptops

Cosmote or VF or WIND ???? not sure which has better coverage and internet speed

I would like to buy the sims at Athens airport when we arrive so I assume the Germanos store there will have Cosmote but does anyone sell VF at the airport?

There seem to be many combinations of packages to get what I want but some of the terminology is hard to understand..

I would appreciate any advice from the forum.

Go with Cosmote, has the best coverage. The speed doesn't matter so much if you can't find network..

Cosmote has 2 kind of prepaid cards: COSMOKARTA & WHATSUP

COSMOKARTA has data plans and some general plans to speak or send sms with any provider.
WHATSUP is great for talking with other whatsup users.

If you want data, your choice should be COSMOKARTA.
The data plans are also the cheapest. With 10 euro you get 1GB usage per month.
The plan is 5 euro for 500mb to be exact.

Happy holidays

Can this coverage map for Wind 4G be trusted?
