SMS Span worse than email spam?

Do you agree that SMS spam is worse than email spam?
If yes, how about an idea that your service provider spams you as if it's desperately trying to make money to stay in the business?

I received 11 spam SMS from reliance during the period of 20 days (19 August to 8 September).
Here are the messages I received and I will like to clarify to the marketing team at reliance who are so fascinated of selling special mobile numbers like 9323933333 and marriage counselling services that I am interested in none. Please do your homework before sending SMS messages. This may be free of cost to you since you own the network and have the database of all mobile numbers, but it disturbs me while I am working/ traveling. I have to read the message to see if it's not an important private message and after reading this junk, I have to delete it immediately to free memory that takes another minute or so.
I hope I have made myself clear enough and request the service providers to stop spamming their own customers.
