PIPE Networks (also known as PIPE) is an Australian company, based in Brisbane, Queensland, primarily involved in setting up peering exchanges. PIPE itself stands for "Public Internet Peering Exchange". They are also involved in other related areas such as co-location, telehousing, and fibre networks.

PIPE listed on the then Australian Stock Exchange on 17 May 2005 as PIPE Networks Limited with a stock code of: PWK.

Australian ISPs dependent on connectivity via PIPE's metropolitan fibre networks include Eftel, iiNet, Internode, Netspace and iPrimus amongst others.

In March 2010, shareholders accepted a takeover offer from TPG Telecom Limited. They have been noted for recently increasing their revenues, in contrast to the general trend in their industry.
