@Ed and anyone

I haven't read that post yet, but do you think this a result of a lack of innovation or some of the regulatory difficulties that some providers find in different countries? I know that in Pakistan the regulatory body overseeing the industry has chosen to limit the mobile banking sector to bank-led models. Do bank-led models generally allow greater freedom for mobile banking providers to innovate?

I know it's probably more complicated than that, but I would still like to hear people's thoughts on the subject or if they could reference any studies on the topic.
