Welcome to the forum!

Lucky for some, to have full fibre - FTTP. :) Though I would presume that FTTP was the only real way to go for Openreach there, since cabinet-based (FTTC) services could offer no better - if VDSL2 isn't doing much then current amendment of is going to do absolutely nada.

For myself, the evolution hasn't quite reached FTTP yet. I had ADSLx for years, lucky to break the 8 Mbps sync. speed barrier. 2016 brought FTTC at 200m (80/20 Mbps sync. speed) and 2019 brought (330/50 Mbps sync. speed).

DSL ain't dead yet, but it's good to see FTTP progress nationwide. At least you know you have the option of more speed if you need it. :) And let's not forget stability.

Welcome to the Kitz forum.  :)

Thank you for documenting your line's evolutionary progress. It makes interesting reading.

I have lived in my current property in very rural Anglesey for nearly 10 years now, when I first moved here I was able to get ADSL over a near 4 mile length of copper to the exchange and I got about 1Mbps (can't remember the upload but it was tiny), then ADSL2 3.5Mbps down & 0.4Mbps up but always loosing connection longest I got was 7 days. A couple of years ago thanks to the Welsh assembly government a fibre cabinet was installed a mile away so I switched to VDSL using a HG612 I was able to receive, 18Mbps down and 1.2Mbps up and now months of stable connection. Finally I could watch iPlayer, Netflix etc in HD but the upload wasn't great. Then in autumn last year some work was going on in my lane, fibre was being installed at each pole, when it was finished there was a fibre cable on the pole at the bottom of my driveway (30m from my house!!). As soon as FTTP WBC was showing on BT's DSL checker I placed an order (It was on black Friday so hopefully I got a good deal). Openreach had to come and survey the job and yesterday was the install.

Install went as follows; my old copper wire was removed then a new overhead cable was connected to the pole via one of my outbuildings to my house, the cable had a single fibre strand (i think) and also a single copper pair. End on it looked like a figure 8 with one on top of the other. this was then fed through into my loft where the copper was connected to my Openreach master socket and the fibre to my new Huawei HG8110 GPON terminal. From there it connects to my Homehub 5 which is soon to be replaced. I did think it would terminate outside and then be connected from there to the inside of the house as I had seen in various forum threads and youtube videos but this is a much neater setup and not unlike the last.

Now I am getting 50Mbps down and 10Mbps up I could have had 300 and 30 but what I have is fast enough for now.

[edit: I shouldn’t post so late. Totally missed the aarch64 stuff. Please feel free to ignore!]

I set up a Pi Zero W the other day totally headless.

I downloaded a Raspbian image and wrote it to the SD Card. Then, you’ll see a volume named ‘boot’ on the card.

Create an empty file named simply ‘ssh’ in the root of ‘boot’ to enable ssh.

Then, create another file named ‘wpa_supplicant.conf’ in the same location. That’s where you can set your WiFi connection up.

Then, pop the SD card in the Pi and it’ll start up, connect to your WLAN with DHCP and you’ll be able to ssh into it.  Defaults are:

Hostname: raspberrypi
User: pi
Pass: raspberry

Here’s a link to an example wpa_supplicant.conf file and further instructions:

Once ssh’d in, run raspi-config to do the usual first-time setup.

You’ve then got a Debian-style Linux system at your disposal!

I’d try another modem if you’re using the supplied Vodafone unit.

My ~600m line ran for 4 years absolutely fine when I was on BT Infinity with an Openreach HG612 modem.  As soon as I switched to Vodafone, the line was barely up for an hour between resyncs.

I ended up banded before switching back to the HG612 - I got a DLM reset done and I’ve been back to normal for the past 2 years or so.
