There's one on East Manoa Road, makai-bound before the triangle park; at Halelena Place and Oahu Avenue; and at Manoa Road, near Manoa School. One is being put up next to the bus shelter on Oahu Avenue at East Manoa Road. I haven't seen them anywhere else in town. They are over 3 feet high, 2 feet wide, over a foot deep and eyesores.</p>
<p><strong>ANSWER</strong>: There is no plan to remove or relocate those &quot;distribution hubs&quot; for Hawaiian Telcom's &quot;Next Generation&quot; fiber network.</p>
