no price range, it's based on the seller

well there is not enough information to answer the question (obviously).

Lets take an example that is a bit easier.

To you, my bike is worth the price of a second hand racing bike (minus the shipping costs to your country) and your life is worth millions.
To me, my bike is worth more than your life (because to me it does not matter if you live or die, it does not affect me, but I do use my bike frequently and I like it).

The price of something is based on the value the buyer derives from it, and the value it has to the seller.

In your example we don't even know if the database contains payment data (and which if any) which personal data, and who is buying it for what purpose.

A database of a Chinese telecom provider is probably worthless to your local butcher. But it may be valuable to a Chinese nerd who knows how to use it.
