Shares of Time Warner Cable Inc TWC and Charter Communications, Inc. CHTR were trading up on Monday, after Reuters reported the U.S. Justice Department approved the latter’s proposed acquisition of the former and of Bright House networks.

Now, there is one final step left: the Federal Communications Commission must approve the transaction. According to Reuters, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler will pass an order around on Monday, seeking consent from the five-member commission. However, some conditions will be included, the DoJ said.
