iPhone 5 LTE Speed Really Slow

I just recently got my iPhone 5 and speed tested the LTE to see if it had lived up to what my friends had (same phone and same carrier) and what I had seen on the Internet (YouTube, etc.). Unfortunately it did not. Using the Speed Test App, the download speed is usually at 8MB or less. The upload is usually around 3.5MB or less. When I looked at my friends' speed tests, they were at around 30/30, which I should be getting too. We both had the same reception (3 bars at the time of both being tested), and there doesn't seem to be a reason why. Already tried to do multiple things like restarting the phone and turning the LTE off and on again. Running iOS7, not sure what else to do. Some help would be great.
