Not sure whether you can specifically request this. To be safe, you might want to base your churn decision on either:
A. Churn, and risk being migrated to a NSW Pop some time in the future as part of some automatic migration / clean up
B. Cancel the churn and find another provider (though it might be hard to find out from them whether they use interstate POPs or not)
Basically, you are purchasing a connection to the internet; how the routing is managed exactly is determined by Exetel.
I remember seeing a thread a while back which highlighted a number of people unhappy with being automatically migrated from ADSL1 to AAPT ADSL2 infrastructure. In that thread, the decision was never reversed; the end users were given the choice of the AAPT ADSL2+ connection, or a waiver of their cancellation fee.
