POIs are nodes that connect your home to the internet. Connecting your home is a multi-step process, and involves not only your internet provider, but also the NBN network and several key connection points along the way.
Your local POI isn't something you should expect to know off by heart, as it's part of the larger NBN network. There's 121 across Australia's states, servicing every household on the NBN network.
Below you'll find the full list of NBN POIs across the country, split up by state. If you're still confused by where your POI might be, some internet providers offer tools to find which one your traffic goes through.
An interim POI is utilised when a permanent POI has not been developed yet, and is typically used in new development areas. Once a permanent POI has been established, household internet traffic will go through the newly created POI.
