The in-train repeaters in IC and ICE trains do only support the 900 and 1800 MHz band with few refurbished cars also covering the 2100 MHz band. That and given the strong attenuation caused by the metal frame of the cars as well as the metallized windows, you should not expect reliable coverage through LTE800 inside a rolling train.
We also have a separate thread about in-train cellular service in Germany:

terminals: Samsung: Galaxy S5 DuoS (G900FD); BLU: Win HD LTE; Nokia: 1200; Asus: Fonepad 7 ME372CG; Huawei data: E3372, Vodafone R201, K3765, E1762;
postpaid: O2 on Business XL; prepaid: DE: Aldi Talk, Lidl; UK: 3; BG: MTel, vivacom; RU: MTS; RS: MTS; UAE: du Tourist SIM; INT'L: toggle mobile
VoIP: (German DID); (British DID); (British DID); (Swiss DID); (Bulgarian DID);

One more option that nobody mentioned before. MTX Connect data SIM card. It has about 30 countries in a coverage zone, and it's a 3-in-1 SIM card with nano-.
It seems to be more expensive than others: 0,1 EURO per 1 MB or 10 EURO per 1 day unlimited data, but it's free to get and easy, you just need to fill the form at their website.
So you should compare carriers and decide what's better for you.
