Inspiration Needed! Building a training on how the Internet works

Hi! I'm building a product training course with four modules for sales associates. We are trying to make sure they know the ins-and-outs of the product. This wouldn't be a problem normally, but the product is the Internet. The features include things like how the Internet gets from the service provider to a person's home, how data is delivered, difference between digital and analog, upload and download speeds....basically some really boring stuff. 

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can make this course interactive and engaging?

Your help is much appreciated!

Just realized I can't quote multiple times on the same post (ARGHHHH!) so here we go again.

"how the Internet gets from the service provider to a person's home"

I'm thinking a marathon runner running out of a pc, through the cable, outside the house, underground etc etc. Use fast cuts and motion paths to make the sequence exciting and/or funny.

"difference between digital and analog"

Use a waveform for analog, then a chunked waveform for digital and explain why the latter is more compact and is used widely in today's technology. Also explain why together with the advantages comes an element of distortion. Give an example of this such as the use of cellphones (which transfer only 20% of the converted waveform to the other end - it's just not that noticeable to the human ear).
