Increase timeout threshold for Wolfram data?

Is there a way of increasing the timeout threshold for functions like Entity, with which you download data from a Wolfram server? I'm having timeout errors for the simplest of queries. Does anyone know when the servers undergo maintenance? Perhaps WR should be more explicit about down times.

A co-worker suggested,

Entity objects make online calls to WolframAlpha so they can be affected by usage of the WA servers. I would try changing the Option value TimeConstraint with

SetOptions[WolframAlpha, TimeConstraint ->60];

to give the WA calls more time.
