There are tons (and tonnes) of "free" cloud storage providers out
there. For example, OVH's hubiC provides 25GB free (100GB@€1pm,
10TB@€10pm). IIRC Box also provides 50GB.

I've also had some success with ownCloud on a low-end dedi (which also
provides other services) for around 500GB@£100py (though I fell back
on Unison sync+Ajaxplorer rather than using ownCloud). This has the
added benefit of keeping everything under my control.
