"In other words, the telecommunications industry can enter the world of banking," said Billy. "They can enter our arena, but we can not get their arena," he said.

However, according to Bambang Supriyogo, Vice President of E-Cash Management Telkomsel, business mobile wallet that was developed a number of telecommunications operators in Indonesia is not to compete with banks or capture market share. "Service e-money or mobile wallet, such as T-owned cash Telkomsel aims to support the government's plan to build a cash less society," said Bambang Update on Cellular Telkomsel in Jakarta, June 28, 2011. "Services like this more as an alternative means of payment, especially for micropayments, whose value reached 100 thousand per transaction," he said.

Unlike the banking services, said Bambang, save money on mobile e-service is not intended for such saving or storing in deposits just like the bank that gives flowers. "Operators like we are not looking for money to roll out the service," said Bambang.

"Simply using telecommunications services, they can do any transactions with certain values," said Bambang.

Since 2003, Telkomsel itself has been working with the banks to roll out financial services for its banking customers. "We became an arm that helps banks, for example through mobile banking services," said Bambang. Bambang said, the future does not rule out the possibility that telecom operators are also working more closely with banks to roll out mobile services this money. "For example when the user wants his mobile wallet to withdraw funds at ATM machines," he said.
