Adam decided to give ChatGPT a crack at creating an article describing the list of POI. Because it basically gives us the “sum of all the internet”, you always seem to end up with copy that looks like everyone else. So it ends up being very “corporatey”. We end up with phrases like “Launtel, your trusted internet service provider” – which is the sort of thing you would hear from Telstra’s marketing dept. So the moral is if you want to be different, don’t use regenerative AI. At Launtel we want to be different! My concern is that as more and more internet copy gets created by AI, it will end up feeding on itself and everything will look more and more the same, bland, pretty useless content. Anyway here is the article….
Welcome to Launtel’s exploration of the NBN’s Points of Interconnect (POI) across the nation. Launtel, your trusted internet service provider, covers all 121 of NBN POIs in Australia. These POIs, as the heart of our network, have names that represent various cities and areas across the country. But, they also have abbreviated codes that might not immediately give away their locations. Today, we’ll take you on a journey through the states, unveiling some of the most important POIs along the way.
Let’s begin with New South Wales (NSW). This state is home to a variety of POIs, such as Albury (2ALB), Blacktown (2BLK), and Chatswood (2CHA). They all contribute to our network’s robust presence in the region.
Now, crossing the border into Victoria (VIC), we discover other key POIs. These include Bendigo (3BEN), Ballarat (3BRA), and St Kilda (3STK), among others, enhancing Launtel’s reach in the southern state.
Heading up north, we dive into Queensland (QLD), where Aspley (4APL), Bundaberg (4BBE), and Ipswich (4IPS) are some of the vital POIs ensuring high-quality internet services.
Moving south to South Australia (SA), locations like Lonsdale Depot (5ADA) and Edwardstown (5EDW) bolster Launtel’s presence in the state.
Across the vast landscapes of Western Australia (WA), the likes of Applecross (6APP) and Subiaco (6SUB) are integral to our network.
The island state of Tasmania is not forgotten, with Launceston (7LAU) being a significant contributor to our coverage and being our home POI, located just 2km from our headquarters in Launceston.
In the Northern Territory (NT), Darwin (8DRW) plays a crucial role in keeping you connected.
And don’t forget the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), where Civic (9CVI) is a key point on our network.
To make things easier for you, here’s a summary of all the POIs in each state, complete with their full names and abbreviated codes:
