So-called free providers come with strings attached.  That said, Amazon S3 is fairly cheap, and
getting cheaper all the time.  Also +1 to rsync.net.

Have a look at S3QL [1].  This creates a virtual Linux file system (that you can mount locally) on
Amazon S3, Google Drive, etc.  From the mounted system you can then use the command line to copy,
rsync, Deja Dup, or as you wish.
