Google To Make Good With Chromebook Pixel Owners Shorted On Verizon Data, $150 Credit
Google is offering affected customers a $150 credit that will come in the form of a Visa gift card, according to Computerworld's JR Raphael, who first reported on the vanishing data plan. Any customer who purchased an LTE Chromebook Pixel while the two-year data plan was being offered will receive the credit.
"While this particular issue is outside of our control, we appreciate that this issue has inconvenienced some of our users," a Google spokesperson said.
It's a pretty bizarre situation since nobody seems to know why Verizon pulled the plug on the second year of data. Up to this point, Verizon has yet to issue a statement on the matter, though it may have to defend itself in court -- at least one law firm has already begun contacting LTE Chromebook Pixel customers to investigate the matter and see if a lawsuit might be an appropriate course of action.
If you're affected by this, you're encouraged to contact Google's Play Store support center to initiate the process.
