The U.S. Town With No Cell Phones or Wi-Fi



As hard as it is to believe at this stage of the 21st century, there is a town in America which has no cell phones or wi-fi—it’s called Pocahontas County in West Virginia and it falls within the National Radio Quiet Zone. That’s because it’s home to the Green Bank Telescope which measures radio waves throughout the universe.

Wireless devices can have a negative effect on the telescope’s observation, so are not permitted near it—which the residents see as a blessing, as it makes for a quiet, peaceful life.
