It's a problem with Google Maps API and their 15x price hike http://geoawesomeness.com/developers-up-in-arms-over-google-maps-api-insane-price-hike/

Basically Google changed the pricing drastically, and then hid it by applying promotions. These were gradually going down so it's only now when we are starting to fully feel what the pricing did. Since in OT it's used in the demo mode as well, the costs are bad even in relatively quiet period, and it crossed the limit.

We are changing it to OSM maps but we need a couple of days for the patch.
