There are quite a few offering "unlimited" storage I believe. Here is some interesting tidbit:

Quote:
The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) ruled on 1 August 2012 that Carbonite had misled consumers by describing its online backup as unlimited. Following a complaint, the ASA investigated and found that due to bandwidth restrictions for uploading data, which limit upload to 2 Mbps for the first 200 GB but then to only 100 Kbps once 200 GB had been exceeded, the backup was not unlimited. Therefore the advert was "likely to mislead consumers".

Additionally, Cabonite breached rule 1.7 of the CAP code for failing to respond to the ASA's charges.
