Asus Ookla speed test : Picking the speed test site manually

Anyone know if there is a way to trick/manually change the location of an Asus router, so that you can pick a speed test that it outside of your local area? I'm in a very rural area. The sites available in the Asus Speed test/Ookla test in my local area, are not good sites for testing higher speeds.

There is a drop-down above Download/Upload to choose sites.

That will only let you pick sites that are physically close to you. I'm about 100 miles from the Denver area. Ideally, I'd like to be able to test against Denver test sites. Using the Ookla app on my phone or a PC, I'm able to pick other locations.
