There has been some lightning in the area recently and unfortunately a lot of rain!
Lightning can damage electrical goods connected to your mains power and also anything attached to your phone line like a ADSL/broadband router.
What can you do?
If you can see or know lightning is approaching the best thing you can do is to disconnect all devices from the sockets to protect your equipment.
The trouble is you’re not always at home or at your business to quickly disconnect everything. Luckily there are some options available to protect your electrical devices which are surge protectors.
Surge protectors come in various forms from full mains power surge protection, power strips with telephone line protection, single socket surge protectors and even simple ADSL filters with surge protection.
