Check with 3 main operators what's available re 3-4G for your area, pointless getting a good deal on one then finding your local masts can't deliver good signal
NOS, Vodafone, Meo

My place is on side of Foia and between me and tower there is 200 meter high hill.. So I use omni directional 13dBm antenna to "catch" vodafone 3G signal.. Only operator what works there always and tell where the towers are.. TMN worked only short periods of day when antenna was "directed" to my direction...

There is now a company that sells prepaid data SIM cards, for short term usage, with traffic included ranges from 1GB to unlimited.
They are called Portugal Internet, and you can find them at www.portugalinternet.com
