My house was run with Cat5e for phone lines. They were all tied together in a mess within a box in the wall along with some old unused satellite equipment.
I have a phone base station, and several remote phones that wirelessly connect to the base, so I only need 2 total phone lines (one for DSL in another room).
Now I use all the other lines for a gigbit network, for things like media players, etc :)

Whoa! Nice job! It's nice you had the cabling run for the phone and you can just patch right in. Nice job cleaning it up as well!
