Setting F-droid client to faster server download - South Pacific

Hi,
New to Fdroid.
Already downloaded several Apps. wondefing why some rather small Apps like “Simple SMS” (7.7MiB) take forever to download (several minutes), although I am using Fiber/Wifi and sole user on the network.

Is there anyway to select a Download Server closer to my homeplace or just less busy ?
Thanks,
Terii, Tahiti

Thanks, I deactivated 4 out of 5, the last one being closer it seems,
(though, nothing on the USA West cost where we can reach the best latency)
Thanks again will see how it works !!!
:hugs:

PS: not sure if one can ADD more, I only have 5 in, my predefined list.
