Hoʻonui ʻia nā koho kelekaʻaʻike hikiwawe no ka poʻe e noho ʻāina hoʻopulapula nei ma o ka noa ʻana o kekahi kānāwai hōʻāmana pilikahi kahiko, i ʻae ʻia ai hoʻokahi wale nō pāʻoihana hoʻolako huahana kelekaʻaʻike. Ma o kekahi kānāwai pekelala i holo iho nei, pēlā me nā koho hou i hoʻonui ʻia aʻela, e loaʻa ai i ka poʻe kūʻai mai o luna o nā ʻāina hoʻopulapula ʻo nā lawelawe kelekaʻaʻike mai ka pāʻoihana hoʻolako a lākou i koho ponoʻī ai.

No nā makahiki lōʻihi he nui, ʻo Sandwich Isle Communications, Inc. (SIC) ka pāʻoihana hoʻolako lawelawe kelekaʻaʻike hoʻokahi ma lalo o ka Laikini 372. Hāʻawi ʻia ʻo Laikini 372 i ka hui he makua no SIC, iā Waimana Enterprises, Inc. hoʻi, i ka lā 9 o Mei i ka 1995.

Ma ka lā 30 o Iune i 2017, ua lawelawe ʻia aʻe e ke keʻena o Federal Communications Commission he Kauoha, nāna e kuhikuhi mai nei, ʻo nā koi hōʻāmana pilikahi a pau i hua mai nei no loko mai o ka Laikini 372, ke hoʻokāpae ʻia nei e ke kānāwai pekelala a no laila, he mea hiki ʻole ke hoʻokō ʻia.

Ma muli o ko ka Federal Communications Commission Kauoha o ka 2017, a ma muli pū o kā Hawaiian Telcom kūʻai ʻana i nā waiwai ʻōnaepuni lawelawe kelekaʻaʻike ma nā ʻāina hoʻopulapula, hoʻolaulā ʻia nā koho e wae ʻia ai nā ʻano lawelawe kelekaʻaʻike like ʻole e ka poʻe hoʻolimalima, hoaʻāina, a mea ʻae ʻia hoʻi.
