In my opinion there are other solutions for ISP's to prevent malware/viruses 
than blocking port 80. 
Maybe these ISP's only support https on 443? Regarding privacy concerns over 
unencrypted protocols like port 80, that seems to me no bad policy.

One of the main reason for existence of ISP's is to support http and https
