Trouble keeping landline number

I am coming to the end of my current broadband deal with Virgin Media. Not one of the new providers I'm looking to move to (TalkTalk, Vodafone, Plusnet, Now)  says that I can keep my existing landline number. Staggered at this as we've had the same number for over 18 years and have switched provider in the past (including to and from Virgin) without an issue regarding the number. Any suggestions?
