Electric Bike de-restriction

I have a Salisbury electric bicycle (bought from powacycle.co.uk) which at the usual 15 m/h feels incredibly frustrating, particularly as i go uphill. Does anyone know how would i go about it to de-restrict it?

You'd probably need to get to the control board and change a resistor or flick a dip-switch... but first we need a technical diagram or a crazed bike hacker.

You find 15mph uphill frustrating? I dream of double figures uphill on a pedal bike. I'd just enjoy the ride....

Even if you de-restricted it, I think you would be lucky to get 15Mph up any kind of hill as the motor simply won't be powerful enough (assuming it is a 250w motor which is the legal max).
Beware of messing with the controller as you could put too much power though the motor and fry it making it useless.
