I wish I could quit you, Mozy

I've been a faithful Mozy backups
user for 3.5 years, but they changed their pricing structure such that it is no longer unlimited. Looking for new remote backup services.

I'm paid up through September, but with the new pricing it is going to cost $220/yr to keep my data on their servers versus the $55/yr I was paying. (I have about 275 GB backed up at the moment.)
Most of my data is hi-res photos. I've looked into Carbonite
, and their pricing is the same as what I'm currently paying Mozy ($55/yr), but I'm worried they will follow suit and change up their prices. Also considering a RAID array (I just have an external HD + Mozy at the moment) but I'd also like an offsite backup strategy.
I use Mozy like my Time Machine backup - it isn't really somewhere I go to access files regularly. How do you deal with offsite backups? Should I consider a "cloud" like Jungle Disk, or is that just too expensive for long term photo storage?
