Long-term offsite data storage (not minute-to-minute backup)?

Can anyone suggest a good service to store data offsite, for long-term secure storage? This is as opposed to, say, minute-to-minute backups of your hard drive.

I don't want a piece of crufty 3rd software uploading, in the background of my Internet connection, every tiny change to every file on my hard drive - as I can use my local Time Capsule for that small stuff. (That seems to be what's suggested in this 2014 post
and this 2010 post
and this 2009 post
, though correct me if I'm wrong.)
Instead, I have a bunch of data - 1 or 2 terabytes - that I'd like to upload all in one go (or even better, fedex a hard drive) and just know that it's somewhere safe and secure for the long term. If I need to download a copy, I'd want online access to the data, but it doesn't have to be immediate or mirrored on a virtual local drive or something.
Bonus points if this isn't run through Amazon or Google (trying to diversify my suppliers), though would still want a solid, reputable company.
