A federal government report into the 5G mobile network has criticised the "extensive misinformation" being spread.
The Committee of Communications and The Arts launched the inquiry in September and released its report this month.
It recommended spectrum allocation be fast-tracked to improve the rollout of 5G, which offered "the opportunity for innovation and connectivity".
It also noted the rise of "myths" around 5G and felt better communication about the reality of the mobile network was needed.
"Community confidence in 5G has been shaken by extensive misinformation preying on the fears of the public spread via the internet, and presented as facts, particularly through social media," the report found.
It felt regulatory bodies needed to better communicate the safety of the 5G network to overcome these myths.
"Better communication of the safety of 5G has been implemented by the Australian Government through the announcement of a campaign to build community confidence in 5G safety," the report stated.
Committee chair Dr David Gillespie said the committee had received assurances from Australian Government agencies and researchers that 5G is a safe technology, including the fact that telecommunications - including mobile telephony, television, radio, wi-fi - operate at extremely low power levels.
