Net pop?  What's that?

Do you mean netpop.com?  If so, then yes. To get there, your traffic would have to go to your ISP, the Internet, Netpop's ISP and then to Netpop.

I have a router that goes into a net pop, i found the below description. I just wanted to ensure thats where that goes ISP

A POP point-of-presence may actually reside in rented space owned by the telecommunications carrier (such as Sprint) to which the ISP is connected. A POP usually includes routers, digital/analog call aggregators, servers, and frequently frame relays or ATM switches.

Okay.  

A point of presence is simply an entry point into a carriers network at a location.  For example, AT&T has POP's in just about every major city.  Some of the POP's are for a specific network (MPLS, Frame-Relay, ATM, Internet) or could offer connections to all of those networks.

So the answer to your question is "it depends".  If the connection is for internet access, then the answer is yes.  If it's for a private circuit to your remote office, then no.

thanks the router goes to the switch and firewall and to pop so it must be internet access

If there's firewall involved, then it's pretty much a certainty it's for internet access.
