Problem with Google map layer

Yesterday Google finally introduced load limits for Google map layer. We faced these limits and even on simple paid account we will continue to have limitations until we find a way to remove the limit.
Reset time for Google map limit is midnight Pacific Time (00-00 PT, 09-00 Paris, 10-00 Msk).

Thank you for your understanding.
