In which case, would it be reasonable to assume you would prefer to physically transport the backup rather than incur 20Gb of bandwidth? Either way, this is an infrequent event.

Sounds about right, but 20Gb of total size and growing equates to, what, about 1Gb of incremental synchronisation bandwidth per month. Still nowhere near 48Gb.
If you are using 48Gb of monthly remote synchronised bandwidth, either your corporation is large (upwards of 50-100 people?), or you are doing something wrong (i.e. synchronising whole mailboxes each incremental backup instead of just differences)
