1. A communication connector including a plurality of contact pairs for conductive connection to respective communication signal wire pairs, comprising:

  • a capacitive laminate including an ungrounded conductive lamina disposed closely adjacent to at least three contacts and a dielectric lamina disposed between the conductive lamina and the contact pairs to separate the contact pairs from the conductive lamina wherein a portion of the conductive lamina extends between at least two non-adjacent contacts and across at least one contact interposed between the non-adjacent contacts such that the conductive lamina capacitively couples a first contact of one contact pair to a second contact of a second contact pair an amount such that crosstalk is reduced between the contact pairs.
