I'm not so sure about that, actually.

I'd say there are some ISP's that spend some (or a considerable) amount 
of time testing for software defects.

My anecdotal experience is that most ISP's have neither the time, tools 
nor resources to do significant testing of software. More like, "is the 
version anything after R1, has it been around long enough, has it been 
recommended by TAC, are the -nsp lists raving on about it, is it a 
maintenance release, is the caveat list too long, does my vendor SE 
approve", type-thing.

Which the majority of ISP's likely will never test for.
