India is the least ‘spammy’ among BRIC countries

Of all the global spams sent, India generates the least spams among the BRIC countries.

The spammy order:

  • Russia: 6.71%
  • Turkey: 6.51%
  • Brazil: 5.29%
  • China: 3.49%

Isn’t this also an indicator of Internet penetration in these economies?

Interestingly, 76% emails originating from India is a spam! (but even then, the number is too small to make it to the top list!).
