Mobile internet in Portugal

Too many and too often!
The Portuguese mobile network MEO is currently selling a prepaid SIM card for €10. This comes pre-loaded with €10 of voice/SMS credit and a data allowance of 2Gb. This is valid for one month in Portugal. The SIM users details do not have to be registered.

On crossing into Spain and eventually losing the MEO network I switched to roaming using Spain's Movistar network. MEO then sent a text suggesting I change to their Europa tariff. Charged at €2.99 per day and giving 100mb of data per day. Renewed automatically daily while credit remains. So a further 3 days of mobile internet from the initial €10 purchase price.

Can I buy in Lisbon? It seems there is Vodophone shop there. Have not heard of MEO. Would I buy online, receive in the mail and then activate it myself once I reach Lisbon? It sounds exactly what I want.
Thanks,
Janice

I found a couple of links this shows network coverage - seems MEO has best coverage, but it looks a little sketchy on CP:

I have address of MEO shop in Lisbon, it is a shopping center: Armazéns do Chiado - Rua do Carmo, Loja 4.09, 2, 1200-094 Lisboa, Portugal

Google map link - shows above address and gives additional info/hours of operation, you can zoom in and see the shop:

Still looking for shop in Lisbon Airport - there must be one surely

I walked from Porto so cannot comment on coverage south of there. From Porto north I am not aware of any time when I was out of range of an MEO signal. I did not check constantly but had no problems whenever I wished to use my phone.
