FWIW, I live in a semi-rural area almost on top of the Pennine hills with an open aspect, in the NW of England & my FTTC connection has been hit by lightning twice since 2011.

However, most of the cabling from the cabinet is below ground, leaving around 40m or so exposed to the elements.

Each time, the damage was only to the ssfp.

I originally had a Mk1 faceplate which was replaced with another Mk 1.

The second time, the Mk1 faceplate was replaced with a Mk2.

On both occasions, there was no damage whatsoever to the HG612 modem, the router or anything else.

The most recent of many occurrences was a few months ago, when I only lost one modem (out of three). The router survived. I'm getting specialist insurance, as before I've lost a switch and a 2500 server was bricked utterly. Before that I've lost ports on routers mainly.

@Bald_Eagle1 out of sheer nosiness, where abouts are you? (PM if prefer) I have a particular love of the entire Pennine chain, coming from Derby I started exploring parts further north than my native Peak District in the 1980s as often as I could, then living in London, but my parents had a Farm just south of the edge of the National Park, in Staffordshire, very near Alton Towers (in fact visible with binoculars amazingly). Until I moved to Skye in 1998, I visited all latitudes of the Pennines as often as possible.

I live on the Oldham/Saddleworth border, around 1000ft above sea level with fantastic views. (I can see Jodrell Bank, Manchester Airport & the Welsh hills on clear days).
