If you're using NBN splashes to power your advanceable ice deck (or Weyland splashes to run advanceable ice out of NBN), this card competes nicely with Matrix Analyzer. If it cost a little less influence, I'd say it replaced it entirely, but it's still competitive as-is because the trigger isn't condition upon the runner hitting any particular server.

Best of all, if you do manage to get a couple of these down with face-down agenda in play, you've set yourself up for an excellent power turn. Pair with Architect or Team Sponsorship for additional fun!

EDIT: As noted in comments, you can't actually use this card to advance ice, since they aren't "in a server". That's worth repeating because it's easy to confuse! This card's synergy in decks that use advanceable ice is based entirely on the understanding that they are likely to contain advancement token manipulation (Shipment from Kaguya, Trick of Light, etc.), and this can help put more tokens on the table quickly.

Don't think you use Early Premiere to advance ICE. It says that you can pay one credit to advance a card IN a server and ICE is considered to be "protecting" the server, not "in" it. —
That's a good distinction to point out! Truth be told, the power of this card isn't in the ability to quickly advance ice (which, as you've mentioned, it cannot do), but rather to quickly turn a facedown, unadvanced card into a card with 3 advancement tokens on it at the start of your turn without spending a click. —

Why go to an Early Premiere when you can get Jeeves to do so for you?

Seriously; everything one of these could do, Jeeves can do better... way better.

This does at least have the edge case benefit of stacking up to 3 times, to allow you to score a Global Food or a Vanity Project from unadvanced, though with the number of ways to score a Global Food from hand with Jeeves, I'm not sure why you would want to, unless there ends up being a card that allows you to install an agenda at the start of your turn that doesn't cost you an arm and a leg for influence.

Pretty sure this doens't work - Early Premiere is an 'at start of turn' ability that doesn't cost a click - so you can only do it once, and it doesn't interact with Jeeves at all. —
I am pointing out that what Early Premiere does (that is, advancing an installed card an extra time) Jeeves does better, not that they interact together. —
Ah, I see - my apologies —
Jeeves is unique, whereas if you have multiple Premiers down, you could theoretically never-advance agendas up to the level of Vanity Project/Mandatory Upgrades. Max jank: add 3x Biotic Labor (or 2x plus 1x Jeeves) for Government Takeover. —
