Does anyone here live in Austria or travel there frequently?

I am planning a trip there in September and I want a SIM card for my iPad so I can have internet access when I am there.

Where would I buy that? I will be in Salzburg first then Vienna.

Thanks!

Normally you can buy at the post office, otherwise in one of the shops of the providers. Maybe this link might be helpful (although a few years old).

When you arrive by plane, you also have a good chance to buy one on the airport.

Good luck!

Adding: I also asked a Dutch guy who organises winter sport trips to Austria for > 20 years now and he always uses local sim cards as well. Keep you posted.

My friend always buys his sim card at the Media Markt (big electronics super store): it provides unlimited internet access and it costs 30 Euros for 3 weeks. After those 3 weeks you can extend it for another 3 weeks if you want.

Address Media Markt in Salzburg: Alpenstraße 107, 5020 Salzburg

Most of the popular places in Vienna are covered by free WiFi.
I was there recently (3 nights) and the free WiFi coupled with some 3G data roaming was good enough for me. My operator is T-Mobile and has some interesting data packages for roaming within the group.

Thanks. Free wi-fi will be nice when out and about, but I update my blog daily and I'd like to post some pics to facebook so I'd like access when at my hotel. From reading reviews of the hotels I have booked it seems that hotel wi-fi is not very reliable.

Oh, and I'm in Canada. I'd pay a fortune for data on my cellphone plan in Austria.
