It is most likely only available in the router; take a look in the router's configuration system.

You're not going to find anything to give you the ISP information in any SDK.

You need to be able to get your outside IP address, which you cannot do from your client without a server. Once you have that address, you need to look that address up in a WHOIS service, which will return a a block of data you need to parse to get the Organization that owns the address. There's your ISP.
