    Europe is large. Might want to break down where exactly you're going and find out what providers are best in those specific area(s). Albania doesn't have the same coverage as say.. Latvia. Most EU providers are GSM so it's going to come down to cost and coverage.

    Unless you have the CDMA version of the K1 you're fine. There are no roaming charges in EU, so if you get a data plan, it works everywhere. Be cautious when traveling to non EU countries such as Switzerland.

    Germany

    - T-Mobile - https://www.telekom.de/start
    - Vodafone - https://www.vodafone.de/
    - o2 - https://www.o2online.de/

    Netherlands

    - KPN - www.kpn.com
    - Vodafone - www.vodafone.nl
    - Telfort - www.telfort.nl
    - T-Mobile - www.t-mobile.nl
    - Tele2 - www.tele2.nl
    - Simyo - www.simyo.nl (prepaid sim card)
    - Lebara - https://mobile.lebara.com/nl/en/
    - Lyca mobile - http://www.lycamobile.nl/nl/
    - AH Mobiel - http://www.ah.nl/mobiel (pay as you go only)

    Part of the issue however is that not all providers will sell to you in advance. Where you're going to both areas, your best options would likely be Vodafone or T-Mobile as you wouldn't really need to change services. Just setup wherever you arrive and keep going.

    My experience in most of Europe and the KeyOne has been best with Vodaphone, even in non EU countries. As someone else suggested, you are best to buy on arrival. Usually I enter through England or Ireland and buy or renew the Sim there.
    The only problem I had in the past was in the Netherlands there was something about KPN where a setting had to be changed, but that was a while ago and upgrades have probably addressed it.

    You can buy an activated SIM in advance on eBay. I’ve had good luck with both 3 and Vodafone.
