According to Apitrel, “in parallel with this strong price reduction, the coverage rate of high-speed fixed networks has increased, having reached in 2021 with a coverage of 92.5 percent”.
“The most recent data from Eurostat, referring to May 2022, once again demonstrate the strong competitive dynamics of the Portuguese electronic communications market. In a context of generalised increase in prices in the economy, national communications services contribute to a lower inflationary pressure on the national economy, through an evolution below the verified inflation”.
Apritel warns, once again, that “the price evolution comparisons supported by Eurostat’s HICP [Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices] cannot be used to compare price levels between countries, only their evolution, and with appropriate precautions”.
Internet providers in Portugal are more expensive than in Northern European countries without the expected quality (e.g. connection often is faulty )

Living in Portugal but from a Northern European country (somewhere in Scandinavia).
A quick check just revealed that for the cost I get internet, TV, 2 mobiles and a landline in Portugal I would only get internet 'somewhere in Scandinavia'. Comparable internet speeds. If you compare cost vs income and not just the monetary value it would be more or less the same 'cost' when you add the other services.
