I wonder if that is local to your area.  My provider is SBC, and they block
nothing at all.  I operate Web Servers, Mail servers, Anti-spam filtering
servers, etc, a whole rack of them.

I might add if they ever did start blocking ports as a matter of course and not
in response to a widespread attack, I would change providers.  There are plenty
to choose from here.

Stop spam on your domain, use our gateway!
