Best cell WiFi coverage in both Sicily & Tuscany??

I have been told by a local friend that is Sicilian & just spent the summer there with her kids, staying with her parents that Wind has the best coverage in Sicily. BUT, I'll be in Tuscany/Umbria the week before and would like to only buy the hardware, SIM card & service once for both locations... Any thoughts???

It depends where in Sicily and where in Tuscany - TIM has good nationwide service.

The "where" question is good but we are wandering around in both areas. We already have wifi in all of the apartments but I'm looking to get a portable modem so the tablet will connect to the internet for maps & navigation when we are out and about. Staying in Agrigento & Taromina in Sicily and Castiglion Fiorentino in Tuscany

Most of Sicily is served by TIM - Enter "Sicily":

I can vouch for TIM in the Arezzo, Cortona, Castiglion Fiorentino, area and even up into the mountains and then over to the Valtiberina area (Monterchi, Anghiari, Sansepolcro, etc). No problems with coverage there.

TIM really provides the most reliable national coverage.

There may be coverage in Sicily with the others in towns, but not in the countryside.
