For some Americans, WIFI is more than just an annoyance — it's a source of health problems. Electromagnetic hypersensitivity is a term for a range of symptoms that sufferers feel when they are exposed to electromagnetic fields, including acute headaches, skin irritation and chronic pain. It’s as if they are allergic to wireless technology. For some, the only solution has been to move to the U.S. Radio Quiet Zone in West Virginia, where no WIFI signal is allowed because it interferes with radio telescopes in the area.

Nichols Fox is one of those people who have moved to the region to escape from WIFI.
