Shows ConnectBoulder public Wi-Fi usage for every public Wi-Fi session, broken down by day and location. This dataset is split into 2 files due to large file sizes; all WiFi usage data older than 30 days is saved in the 'Historic' zipped file.
Please note that a few days of public Wi-Fi usage data are missing in these datasets due to one-time issues with data reformatting. In the main 'Public Wi-Fi Usage' file, usage data from 10/26/2017-11/2/2017 is missing, and in the zipped 'Historic Public Wi-Fi Usage' file, usage data from 10/19/2017-10/21/2017 is missing. Additionally, the number of unique Wi-Fi sessions are likely under-counted during February through mid-March 2018 due to an issue with one of the City’s servers being temporarily low on resources. Please take this into account when using this data.
