Go-Jek CEO Nadiem Makarim also used the opportunity to hint about a new, upcoming service called Go-Pulsa, which will be available in the next four months.

“Go-Pulsa will be one of our new products to come out soon. But it’s still too early [to talk about it]. There are still a few months [before it is launched]. But since today we are launching a partnership with Telkomsel, then I’d like to use the opportunity to announce our new product,” he stated.
