> Bandwidth is one of the problems. If a typical IPFS node is a home computer than it has 10x upload speed compare to the download speed. This is going to limit how somebody can access content from IPFS.

This can easily be addressed by choosing hosts which have gigabit upload links if you are hosting high demand files. Personal computer backups may opt for hosts with 10mbit upload that offer much cheaper storage. It may not be possible to do so atm, but eventually the platforms will get there. It's still very early and most distributed storage technologies are nowhere near complete.
