The Town Without Wi-Fi

The residents of Green Bank, West Virginia, can't use cell phones, wi-fi, or other kinds of modern technology due to a high-tech government telescope. It's a premodern place by design, devoid of the gadgets and technologies that define life today.

Over the last few years, electrosensitives have flocked to the tech-free idyll in West Virginia, taking shelter beside cows and farms and fellow sufferers. Electromagnetic hypersensitivity is a descriptive term for symptoms purportedly caused by exposure to electromagnetic fields.
