For any brand new home, the best thing to do is to lay multiple sets of CAT6 cabling to every room and terminate them all in to one central wiring closet during construction before the walls are finished.  Forget about running standard twisted-pair phone cabling.  CAT6 cabling can carry anything from 10-megabit to 10-gigabit Ethernet, up to 15 watts of intelligent power with 802.3af POE (Power Over Ethernet), IP phones, to dumb analog phones.  At the end of the CAT6 cable will be the standard RJ-45 socket, which is downwards-compatible with the standard RJ-11 phone socket that your regular phone cords use.  While computing devices are rarely ever “future proof” beyond one year, CAT6 cabling will easily be the preferred wiring medium for the next two decades or more.  In most existing buildings or homes, hiring a contractor to rip out the walls to add CAT6 cabling to every room is not a luxury that most people can or want to pay for.  For those people, CAT6 wiring must be added sparingly to minimize contracting costs but still provide a high-speed gigabit backhaul for the modern home.
