+1, the point, restated, would be to ensure that during IETF events,
attendeees who may need/want them can buy SIM cards at reasonable
prices, and including obtaining some help in activating them taking into
account that this process can be highly location-dependant and may imply
languages other than English.

If this results in one, two, or eight booths, or in a single wiki page
with pointers to a nearby store (store that /should/ be contacted
previously IMO), its all fine.
