Australian Providers for Offsite Backup over Internet

I am looking to move a very small client to an offsite backup solution. As I am based in Australia, I would prefer a business that is run from same location for support reasons.

I have a SBS 2003 which has an issue with connecting any type of USB Storage device. I have been through the ringer in trying to resolve this, so am now looking at my options in just backing up over Internet to offsite location.

I currently backup locally and then copy across network to a USB drive attached to a workstation - as you can imagine this has a lot of inherent issues and is only a short short term solution.

Suggestions please!

Been using them from a few years now - very solid.

THis one was recommended by one of my peers, but I have no experience with them so can't comment.

Bluefire (http://www.bluefire.com.au/) offer that service too. They have a nifty wee box that you dump the data to locally. It then sends the backup data off to Bluefire - sort of like a staging area - it also means you can use a low bandwidth link.
