A: It sounds perfectly natural.

However, in formal writing, you should use "there is" instead of "there's", and it would better to say "available here" rather than just "here". Also, officially the wireless standard is called "Wi-Fi" (the F should be capitalized).

In formal writing, this would be better:

"Unfortunately there is no Wi-Fi internet available here."
