I used to use VirginMedia until they started charging. I'm a bit disgusted as I upgraded it to the top tier to get unlimited backups. They were going to charge an extra £17 or so a month to back my data up.
I now use a pure backup solution from Amazon called Glacier. You pay for what you send and receive. When I first backed up my 200gb they billed me just over $5. Subsequently the monthly fee for changes has been around $3.
It is a backup solution and not cloud storage. This means that access to retrieve data isn't instant, it can take a few hours, but for me I backup my NAS box to a PC locally as well. This is used as an off site backup in case something happens to the house.
You can get clients for all kinds of things like Ubuntu. I just store my data on a NAS box and that has a backup client that backs changes up at 3am. I'm not worried about the individual PCs as they don't have data on them and can be rebuilt.
