The firm also announced that it has “enough capacity” to serve internet needs of Filipinos.

Students and employees can still continue their work-from-home scheme with uninterrupted internet connection, the company said.

“You will still be able to do video and voice calls for work and access your school’s online learning platform,” read the statement.

In an updated advisory, PLDT also informed that the international trans-Pacific submarine cable system AAG will conduct maintenance activities from Sept. 26 at 9 a.m. to Sept. 20 at 5 a.m.
