This analysis is so unfair! Companies actually use these estimates to decide how much to pay an employee who is relocating, so it's important to get it right!
Comparing the utility bills of an 85m2 between say Porto and London is stupid. Simply because in Porto people don't normally warm up their houses to the temperature that is normal in UK homes. Meaning, families go cold, or hot, whatever the month may be. Please compare the cost of a unit of electricity - or even better the cost of the amount of electricity or gas a UK household uses expressed at the cost electricity has in Portugal - and you'll see a very different story.
Also, another key factor, tax in Portugal is TWICE the level of tax in the UK - percentage applied on salary is just TWICE. So if you were to get 38% less in your base salary, you'd be paying so much more tax for that so you'd actually be getting less than half your current salary in Portugal.
Finally, prices of houses and rents are in a huge boom in Porto. Must update those numbers all the time too.

Hello, I have been living in porto for the last 9 months. I am spending on rent about 250 euros. Its a shared room in a house. One can get for even less, but the space and comfort might be an issue. And the transport is based on zones here, so bit complicated and I have a Z4 that covers four zone cost about 48 euros per month. Coming to the food, based on your lifestyle. I cook mostly and take my lunch to office sometimes so I spend around 200 euros on food per month. and drinks and partying as much as you can. You can enjoy with less than 100 too, there are places you can hangout all the time. Hope it helps some people who are looking to move to porto. ( this is for a single guy)

Its impossible to put a price on a 6Mbps internet connection in Portugal, since the minimum is 30 MBps (at least since 2013), and with a TV channel pack included (from 60 to 140 TV channels). All this (30Mbps, average 100 tv channels) costs from 25,90€ to 35.90€.

So, 6Mbps, internet only costs an average 5€.
