As far as service level, the verizon hotspot is the same service as the home fusion. Both LTE services. The hotspot is very easy to setup. When you receive it from millenicom, it's already setup and ready to go for you out of the box. It includes an instruction sheet that basically says the wifi password is inside the battery cover. Make note of the password, power it on, connect the power cable if battery is low and connect your wifi to the device. That's it. Actually the homefusion on a tech level would be harder to troubleshoot because it has more parts making it more complicated than the simple hotspot is.
