So I have ethernet ports in every room, and I'd like to somehow hook up the internet to them. Any advice?

So today I was messing around and realized that what I thought were phone ports were actually ethernet ports. (maybe both?)
I'd like to figure out a way to feed my internet connection to the wiring in my house, to output the internet from all the ports in my house.
After a few google searches, people have been recommending looking for a hub or centralized port of some sort. I found something that MIGHT be it, in the master bedroom closet, the picture is here
. It appears to just be an ethernet cable sticking out of the wall, tied to a bunch of other cables with no ends.
Any advice is much appreciated!
