What modem gives 1GB wifi ?

I currently have the XB6 Comcast modem and get a 700Mbps through an ethernet wired connection. I can get 225Mbps through the 5Ghz wireless frequency to my Samsung tablet. So which Comcast modem will I ned to get 1Gb wifi speeds? And what frequency will my wireless devices need to connect at the 1 Gb speed? Is this 5G?

I got the Xb7 with WiFi 6 I get 800Mbps with my IPhone 12, of course your devices must be WiFi 6 capable

No. 5G is a cellular service.

So what is Xfinity promising with their 1Gb wifi commercials?

The downlad speed to the modem is 1GB.  You will Never get 1GB over wireless, no matter what combination of hardware you use.  Wireless speeds depend on many, many factors.  You will never get the 'theoretical' speed of whatever wireless protocol you are using. 

 

The ad is for 1GB connection to the modem, not for wireless connections.

Sure you can. You just need to use a router with a WAN port greater than 1Gb or aggregated 802.3ad ports, and you need WiFi 6 clients using 160MHz channels.

I get full 1.2Gb over gigabit connection using WiFi.

To date, the fastest Wi-Fi 6 speeds we've seen came from the TP-Link Archer AX6000, which measured in with an average wireless download speed of 1,523 Mbps at a distance of 5 feet. Range was strong with that router, too -- at a distance of 75 feet, the connection still averaged out to a blazing fast 868 Mbps.Feb 23, 2020

How fast is Wi-Fi 6? Here are our latest speed test results ...

Go look on DSLReports.  There's a thread about speed increases on Xfinity gigabit plans.  

 

I use a Arris T25 supported eMTA, with 802.3ad LAG enabled, which gives me a 2Gb pipe between the eMTA and my router, an Asus RT-AX88U which is a WiFi 6 router.  My 5 GHz network is configured with 160 MHz bandwidth (8x20MHz channels), and I routinely get 1.0 - 1.2 Gbps over WiFi to my WiFi 6 clients.
