Last week I got few missed calls from a number starting with +882. In search of +882 country code, I learned some thing new which i want to share it with you.

+882 & +883 numbers are not dedicated to a single countries. Those numbers are allocated to satellite Telephone providers .

The numbering format will be +882/3 + Service Provider Identification Code + Subscriber Number

Providers identification code will be two-digit number in 882 code space .And three or four digit number in 883 code space

The below Table was taken from Wikipedia.
