So essentially as the title says, I have read a couple super user ‘articles’ regarding the use of surge protectors with outdoor Ethernet, my question is would a lightning strike be a risk for about 2-3m of Ethernet outside? The cable would be low down to the ground, for some of the run it would be sitting on grass and for the other part it would be on tarmac.
This is the type of cable I’d be using: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00I4RA7HM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_H1ZYAbXHBY75N - they also have a foil twisted paid version? Not sure wether to use that or not. I should also be noted that I live in the UK, more specifically nearish Wallsend.
