2nded, I tried for months to get Ericsson to get us a quote and sort
us out with a solution as I'd used their kit and liked it in the past.

Exactly as Tim said, they just didn't seem interested if you're not
after a big $$ solution.

We went with ASR1k as cisco came to the party on price and we were already 
using 7200 at the time.  No complaints.

In my experience, Ericsson as an organisation just aren't set up to deal with a company that want to buy a couple of boxes, install and run them themselves, and call support when something breaks - it's all about multi-month PoCs and fully-managed rollouts at incumbent-telco scale.  Think 20M subs, not 20k.
