Take and block-time don't change from becoming a supporter. You get extra statistics, a personal highscore list, more zone-suggestions per round and customize options for your character.

Actually there is a problem. The zones start at 17mins block then reduce back to normal times instantly. What's going on ?

The block time for revisited zones is only 5 minutes. I'm guessing the app implements the normal block first and the change to revisit block is slightly delayed.

I'm confused. It is 5mins standard but as a supporter now should it not be the 17mins plus ? It is currently only at 5mins.

Block time is varying 10- 20+minutes depending on taker's level. For revisit it is 5 minutes flat.
The app doesn't know the details. When it sends the take, it sets the block time to just a few minutes, don't remember exactly. When the server confirms the take, it will update to the correct one, which likely will be longer.

You can also observe this on zone color, only one of the area and the central/zoomed out marker will change color on the take, for a while it is in mixed state, and then the other follows.

Again, no pay2win so supporter won't affect block or take time. Rank, having the region crown and keeping gps on will. Supporters keep the servers running and get a few side perks, thanks for supporting!

Here's how different ranks affect your take and block time: https://wiki.turfgame.com/en/wiki/Ranks

Oh I understand now thank you. I was under the impression my earned block time of 17.5 mins was only activated when supporting but it is actually that it doesn't apply to revisited zones. Which is basically all I am doing at the moment.

thank you for sharing this info because after a lot of searching on net I didn't find anything but now after visit this forum I am able to know about it.
