In other words: as of today a large part of the bandwidth is allocated to building everyone's collection of files. This might gradually change to become bandwidth being used only for incremental updates as huge local file libraries become common place.
But this possible assumes that production of new media will either slow or stay at a constant rate. The never-yet-realised side effect of all this distribution capacity is that possible many more artists will have access to the listeners / viewers and in more narrow niches than the existing system allows. And that may be the real nightmare for the existing vested-interest groups.
