Rez is residential right?

Basically they block them so only certain areas or people can use them, or direct the signal so its better focused in one area not the other. This makes it so less people are on a specific router, thus the bandwith is high per person and goes faster. If you have crap loads of people on a router its going to go slower.

IF you think a router is making the internet slow thats just stupid. Router is nothing more than directing a signal to several computers through ethernet or wireless. It has no effect on how slow the internet is, the amoung of people using it does.

Unless they advertised free internet, then thats why they are blocking it in residential. However you are right, if internet is slow, routers will be even slower.
