For secure online storage, is the upload/download also secure?

I want to nuke my laptop data and store it all online then access my files securely wherever I travel. There are at least six good AskMe threads about secure online storage (main recommendations are Mozy and Jungle Disk-to-Amazon S3). But what I want to know is: how secure is the upload/download? A stupid question perhaps. What good would secure storage be without secure transmission? But I can find a clear answer.
If I sign up for Mozy, Jungle Disk or another online storage provider, are my uploads and downloads encrypted?
