Are you changing from BT to another provider? Not unusual for different providers to have different number ranges.

For example here in Reading BT numbers start with a 9 and Virgin with a 3 after the 0118 dialling code.

In Seaham County Durham we have ran out of BT numbers. were are normally 513 or 581 after 0191, but I know if you are with Talk Talk it is 597 after 0191 or with Sky it is 469 are 0191.

That would explain it as they use their own numbers you could've opted to keep your own number but it depends if that number is available had you gone with BT in your new home (ie if you are on the same exchange)
