1. A data communications cable comprising:

  • a first twisted pair of insulated conductors;

    a second twisted pair of insulated conductors;

    a dielectric pair separator consisting of a dielectric layer disposed between the first twisted pair and the second twisted pair of insulated conductors, the dielectric pair separator being folded and arranged to provide a plurality of grooves extending along a longitudinal length of the dielectric pair separator, the dielectric pair separator providing a sufficient spacing between the first twisted pair of insulated conductors and the second twisted pair of insulated conductors so as to provide a desired crosstalk isolation between the first twisted pair of insulated conductors and the second twisted pair of insulated conductors;

    a jacket assembly enclosing the first twisted pair of insulated conductors, the second twisted pair of insulated conductors and the dielectric pair separator; and

    wherein the plurality of grooves do not form completely enclosed channels.
