    What is the time scale please: week ? Day ??
    Or does “xx minutes per visitor” mean… per visit ???
    Not sure to get it right

      Amidii, it’s my understanding these numbers reflect “per visit”. Keep in mind you’ll have some folks pop on and pop off the network, while others will stay logged in, wander away from their computer, then return. Good question, though! Matt
