In fact, customer support is one of the biggest expenses for just about 
every ISP.  It's not that they don't want to provide good support; it's 
that they can't afford to.  (Why?  Well, think about how much money you 
would want to answer questions that are (a) generally about Windows and 
its misfeatures, and (b) often asked by folks whose clue bit is 
hard-wired to 0.)
