KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A report Friday afternoon in the New York Times says the merger between Sprint and T-Mobile might be nearing approval from the Justice Department if certain conditions are met.

The report says the merger is close to approval, but only if the two telecommunications giants spin off assets that could be used to establish another wireless provider.

News comes the same week that several attorneys general announced possible plans to file a lawsuit to block the $26 billion merger.

Overland Park-based Sprint and Bellevue, Washington-based T-Mobile announced the merger plan in April of 2018
