Google offers $150 gift card for Chromebook Pixel data shutoff • The Register

Verizon goes out of its way to alienate Google and its Pixel customers

""While this particular issue is outside of our control, we appreciate that this issue has inconvenienced some of our users," a spokesperson told El Reg. "We are offering gift cards to affected customers."

As it turns out, $150 does buy you quite a lot of LTE time on Verizon – for its prepay tariff, $20 will give you 3GB over 90 days, so Chromebook owners are actually getting rather a good deal, thanks to Google's largess.

Not so Verizon. By saving the tiny sum it would have cost to make good on its original agreement, the firm has pissed off plenty of Chromebook owners and made it highly unlikely that Google will partner with them again on future hardware."
