Not true my wireless antenna received a direct strike, obviously the wireless kit (21m aluminum pole) was all fried but the UPS took the hit for the rest of (laptop, LCD screen etc...) the kit US$200 for a new wireless kit and we were back up and running. That being said we are fairly certain the copper earthing strip took the brunt of the voltage since it was reduced to a thin smear down the side of the house. I worked through the last big solar storm about 12 years ago and we had some power outages (tripping the breaker from the mains) satellite comms just about dropped out completely and POTS was severely derogated, but just not that bad.
