Online classes and home-based businesses that use the internet can operate as "normal" even during PLDT Inc's scheduled maintenance, which was also shortened compared to an earlier advisory, the telco said late Thursday.

It will start at 9 a.m. Saturday, instead of 8 a.m. Friday. It will end by 5 a.m. on Sept. 30, Wednesday, PLDT said. Alternatives have been found for the undersea cable that will undergo maintenance works during the said period, it said.

"We wish to assure PLDT and Smart customers of continued internet connectivity all throughout," PLDT said

"Student can still do their online studies and exams and users in homes and businesses can go about their normal internet-based activities during this time," it said.
