Hello Sir, This is Towhid, GIS assistant at NRECA Intl. Ltd. I need to digitize using qgis 2.18.1 with google and bing map as base map. Sometimes I experienced slow loading problem of the online base maps while digitizing though I use 20 mbps internet connection. I think people all over the like me face this problem. I have a concept to overcome this problem as- The surrounding screens/views(left,right,top&bottom) of the current screen/view(that is being used for digitizing) can be loaded automatically so that he/she do not need to wait for the base map in next screen. The screens/views will be loaded automatically during digitization period of the middle screen. Also there should have an option to turn this feature OFF as well as ON as users can use it according to their necessity.

Thank you in advance. I'll be looking for your kind effort to add this feature as soon as possible.

See recently merged work to preload tiles in qgis 3 https://github.com/qgis/QGIS/pull/4777

Having your feedback on that would be nice to see if it solves your problem.
