I have a friend who runs a large, free public-access wifi network in a park. 
The network requires no authentication. There is modest promotion of the 
availability of free-wifi. He’s looking to estimate the total number of 
visitors to the park from the number of unique clients he sees on his wifi 
network. Despite the fact that a significant proportion of visitors have their 
smartphone with them, only a certain percentage will appear on the network due 
to a variety of factors including phone settings and a user checking to see 
whether there’s wifi available.

What percentage of the total visitor number does the MCN brain trust think he 
will see on his network? Or maybe put another way, what percentage of the 
population looks for free wifi?
