Broadband Safety And Lightning Storms

I have just switched to Broadband and as the DSL line is always connected to the main telephone box through a DSL filter is it safe to keep it connected during a storm due to lightning?
I read sometime ago about pc equipment etc being damaged due to lightning.

Many Thanks

A good surge protector incorporating a telephone line connection should set your mind at rest.

Belkin offer a good range and also guarantee your equipment against damage BUT that is physical hardware, not software or DATA. Backup is your only protection for your data.
