hotspot usage

I want to use my hotspot instead of WiFi but it won't work as long as WiFi is available. Is there a way to make it work? The bandwidth is much better on my phone than what my ISP offers at home. I am trying to stream HD movies, and the performance is terrible.

Thanks for that. What I later discovered was that on my iPhone 5S, a warning pops up when turning on the hotspot if a WiFi connection is already available. By accepting "turn on WiFi", it then works. HD movies are now streaming properly. Hopefully this post will help others with a similar problem.
