Not having a matching single/multithread speed is not ideal. It suggests a problem somewhere. Could be your computer, your router or your ISP. There was a time over a year ago when a misconfigured router at IDNet caused me the same problem. Ideally they should both be the same eg:
It's reasonable to expect the multithread result to be a bit 'better' but a significant difference is odd. Might not be a fault as such but worthy of further investigation.
Additional note: The above only applies to sources where there are known to be no limits on single thread speed (eg; a speed tester). Real world servers may have a limit on the speed of a single thread in which case if the server allows you to establish multiple connections you will see higher speeds that way.
NB:The peak at the start of my multithreading result is caused by my antivirus.
