Those problems you describe may be the providers initially andOf course - if your transit provider falls over, Bad Things happen, especially if you placed all your bets on one network.
Doesn't change the fact that the most expensive equipment doesn't stop someone from fat-fingering a config.
End of day, I believe the people running a network and the history of that network's performance & stability are orders of magnitude more important than whether they have GSRs vs. 7600s or Junipers vs. Force10s. But that's me. Feel free to pick your provider because they run all Foundry in the core if it makes you happy. Your bits, your decision.
Of course, if you look at all the stable networks run by good people, you may find a correlation with the equipment being used. Dunno, you might not. Either way, I'm putting my faith in the engineers to run a good network, not the box vendors. My bits, my decision.
