Health scares and lies about the incoming 5G mobile network will be targeted by a new awareness campaign.
Public money will also go towards researching the electromagnetic energy emitted by the technology.
Telcos have been calling on the federal government to counter misinformation about the 5G rollout.
Communications Minister Paul Fletcher said radiation emitted by 5G was no different to a microwave or baby monitor.
Mr Fletcher pointed to various international health authorities, including the World Health Organisation, who said the technology was safe.
"The rigorous safety standards for mobile networks and devices in Australia draw on extensive scientific research into (emissions), globally and in Australia, over many decades," he said on Monday.
