300$ would be (at the limit of) reasonable *M*RC for a 12 FO cable (= 6 duplex XCOs). Or the one-off (*N*RC) for one XCO. That's actually close to the rates we have on this part of the ocean. 

300$ for one XCO (2 FO) is "robbery in organised band" (word-by-word translation of a french legal term). You can get metro waves (some 10-20 km distance) for lower than that (again, on my part of the ocean).
