Stupid to buyacow when milk is free

Wondering as to why a major provider would keep two open routers, major brands, allowing anyone to configure and connect while they are selling the same, but faster services in the same city. This appears to be a mesh network? Is this common?

They run at about 3MB but throttle down to very low download speeds during certain scheduled hours, while their upload speeds remain fairly constant.

Not complaining, it's FREE and allows me to experiment :-)

(sorry for any repetitions of this post, it's a reliability issue)
