University campus switching to VOIP. The landlines are perfectly good. What else can they be used for?

Aside from a backup system, how else could the old system be used? I'm vaguely aware of a plan to use it to send out a campus radio station signal awhile back. Was it carrier current transmission? Can phone lines be used for that? Assume Ethernet is all over, and wireless is good in most places. Is a wireless antenna possible for the harder locations? Are any science experiments possible? Anything else?
