I myself use them at our tower sites at the bottom AND the top.  I had a
tower get struck, directly and lost everything...including the switch at
the location.  Since then, I figured 3mil volts can go through thin
cat5e jacketing.  Even through the shielding if it isn't properly
grounded.  Now I soldier the casings onto the crimp on ends when
possible so hopefully it will go to ground without hitting the copper
inside.  I use the Hyperlink surge protection, and the keystone jacks
are for shielded cabling, so it goes to ground.  The surge suppression
is just added protection.  Remember, electricity takes the least path of
resistance, when metal heats up, it becomes more resistant.  So that
bolt of lightning can go where it wants...

That said, I am giving the electricity 2 points to exit to ground, so
hopefully I don't lose any more equipment.

The tower is WELL grounded, it is an old AT&T sight, with the copper
mesh in the ground, and all buildings and towers have copper 5/8" or
larger going up the sides and cad welded to them and also to the grid
below ground.  LOTS of money... 

I don't at the CPE, just use the built-in surge suppression and
definitely ground the CPE for static.  I see it as if the house gets
struck by lightning; they have more to worry about than internet... Now
if a tower gets struck, I have hundreds down, not 1.

Do you find that a surge supressor at the CPE is better then at the 
internal PC/Router/Switch? Or do
you use one at each end?
