Places on the planet where there is no telephone connection
We all have long been accustomed to the fact that mobile communication is almost everywhere, wherever we have been. In particular, when high-speed Internet has appeared in almost all corners of the earth and you can even send an elementary SMS message to your friends and family and, by the way, this can be done absolutely free and quickly with the facesms.ru service. But actually it is not. There are places on Earth where you can’t make a phone call, because there simply isn’t any cellular coverage.
Kifuca, Democratic Republic of Congo
Kifuka is one of the most dangerous places in the world. According to statistics, 158 lightning strikes per year per square kilometer. On this basis, the use of any electronic device can be equated to suicide.
Green Bank, USA, West Virginia
Green Bank is the city where the largest telescope is located (its task is to receive weak signals from space). On this basis, it is forbidden to use any device with electromagnetic radiation. The list includes mobile communications, a Wi-Fi network, and even two-way radios.
The Motuo region is in Tibet, local Buddhists consider it sacred. Getting there is very difficult, a 200-meter suspension bridge and permafrost (you still need to understand what is worse from this) will stand in your way. The area is completely uninhabited (all because of this bridge, I know for sure), so the fauna here is very unusual.
Muli, Faroe Islands
Here is the most unpredictable weather, there are practically no resources necessary for life. Although it does not bother those 4 locals. Tourism here is not very common, so Muli can be safely called “God forsaken place.” We are not even talking about some kind of communications.
Pitcairn Island, Pacific
The population of Pitcairn Island is only 50 people. Mobile communication, the Internet or something else related to civilization, is not here. Contact with the outside world is maintained only with the help of a ship that visits the island once a month.
Station “Academician Vernadsky”, Galindez Island, Antarctica
I think you know that Akademik Vernadsky station is the only Ukrainian station in the Antarctic. Communication with the outside world is carried out only with the help of a satellite, and the Internet speed is not always enough even to send an email.
Wyau Laut, Philippines
Locals got the nickname “sea gypsies” because they spend most of their lives in floating houses and very rarely set foot on the beach. Vayau Laut is on the list of places of little use for life. There is neither drinking water, nor electricity, and the connection with the “big” world is very rare here.
Socotra Island, Indian Ocean
The whole steepness of the island is that it is completely isolated from the outside world (they often call it “an alien place on Earth”), so here you can find very unusual plants. About 42 thousand local residents live in Socotra, despite this number, there are no benefits of civilization (mobile communication or the Internet).
Oymyakon is the coldest populated place on the planet (the temperature was -71 ° C). In such conditions, almost everything freezes, not to mention a mobile phone that simply cannot work at this temperature. Communication of residents with the outside world is very rare here, planes arrive only in summer (and even once a week).
Gorai is a village in which the whole way of life is built on meditation. Therefore, with phones, tablets and other gadgets you will not even miss here. In Gorai, you must clearly follow the established daily routine (nothing difficult – sleep, eat, relax, meditate). So, since the phones are not used here, then there is no mobile connection either.
Not everything is as bad as it seems at first glance, because in such places you can truly take a break from all the benefits of civilization, only Kifuk’s lightning and Oimyakon’s frost are best avoided.
