We dont have a lot of data, but we use http://samba.anu.edu.au/rsync/ 
with http://freshmeat.net/projects/pdumpfs/

Since our data doesnt change very much, we have a backup that cost us 30 
GB the first time,.. after this it took 10 GB for 1 month.
(still have to write a clean script that will be triggered when the disk 
is almost full)
Advantage with this sollution that you can also browse back in time.

Please notice that we did use WIFI to have a geographical distance!
